The Heritage Community Foundation (Charitable number: 87082 2541 RR001) is a charitable trust that links people with heritage through discovery and learning. Its priorities are development of online learning resources; creation of experiential learning opportunities for children and youth; and research into painful aspects of our history for public education and healing.
The World Wide Web has been chosen as the primary medium for communicating media-rich heritage content to educational users and the general public. The Heritage Community Foundation develops and resources web development projects that showcase the historical, natural, cultural, scientific, and technological heritage of Alberta. Both public and private-sector partners are involved in online content development.
An important aspect of the Foundation's web development strategy is its web advisory council made up of heritage professionals and stakeholders. The web advisory council advises the Foundation on the development of online learning resources for the Alberta Online Encyclopedia and other media initiatives.
