In this section, you will be introduced to
a representative selection of individuals who have contributed to
the rich tradition of innovation in Alberta. By no means an exhaustive
list, we hope that our collection of profiles will provide you with a
clear, yet perpetually developing snapshot of inventors in our province.
You will come to know of their lives and their
motivations. Learn about their experiences and how certain ideas were met
with support while others fell by the wayside. Find out how some individuals
and their inventions received recognition while others remain
unknown and forgotten.
Some of the profiled inventors in this section are historical
figures and some are currently at work developing and patenting new processes and
products. Equally important, these profiles illustrate how innovation in Alberta today
could not exist without that which preceded it.
For many, science and invention lack a human quality.
To understand an invention, it is important to look at the inventor.
Explore this section to discover the lives and impact of
these ingenious Albertans.
