CKUA Radio Network Inc.

The CKUA Radio Network has been operating in Alberta, Canada for more than 70 years. One of the world's oldest public broadcasters, CKUA now maintains its eclectic mix of music and educational programs over a network of 16 FM transmitters, one AM transmitter and one satellite. The Internet carries our popular Real Audio broadcast to more than 37 countries.

After seventy years, CKUA remains a unique and exciting public broadcaster--rich in tradition, and fresh and innovative in its programming and business operations. CKUA continues to accomplish significant milestones and continually develops its roots across Alberta.

Since the Government of Alberta privatized the station in 1994, CKUA has been governed by the non-profit CKUA Radio Foundation, through a combination of commercials, corporate underwriting of programs, and listener donations. CKUA truly is public radio, freely supported by our listener base.

CKUA and the Heritage Community Foundation are proud to present the Heritage Trails, a 500-vignette series of features about Alberta history

Glenbow Museum, Art Gallery, Library and Archives

The Glenbow Museum has been a long-standing partner of the Heritage Community Foundation on many of our website projects.  As a result, the websites have gained incredible authenticity and integrity through the vast array of images selected from the Glenbow's extensive on-line catalogue.  We are very proud to have them as a partner on this virtual exhibit and look forward to continuing what has become a very productive partnership.

The Glenbow is western Canada's largest museum, with over 93,000 square feet of exhibition space spread over three floors. More than 20 galleries are filled with artifacts from Glenbow's collection of over a million objects.

The art collection contains some 28,000 works which date primarily from the 19th century to the present. Glenbow acquires historical, modern and contemporary works from the northwest quadrant of North America, focusing on the representation of this region and its place in western Canada. 

Glenbow's Library is a treasure house of reference materials on western Canada. More than 100,000 books, periodicals, newspapers, maps, and pamphlets capture the people and events that have shaped our western Canadian heritage.

Glenbow Archives, one of Canada's largest non-governmental repositories, is a major research centre for historians, writers, students, and the media. It houses an extensive collection of unpublished archival records of individuals, families, organizations and businesses, including 3500 metres of textual records, over a million photographs, 350 hours of film footage, and 1500 sound recordings.
