The Alberta Estonian Heritage Society (AEHS) is a nonprofit organization established in 2005 to preserve and promote the cultural history of Alberta's Estonian community, and to increase awareness of developments in Estonia.

Since 2006, a major focus of the AEHS has been the development of a heritage project to research, collect, describe and communicate information about the history and activities of Alberta's Estonians. The deliverables include an richly illustrated heritage book, a documentary DVD, an Estonian Collection preserved at the Provincial Archives of Alberta, and a comprehensive virtual archive with online access worldwide.

The Heritage Community Foundation is a charitable Trust (Charitable Number: 87082 2541 RR0001) committed to connecting people with heritage. As a new kind of community foundation, it is not bounded by geography but based on interest in the value of heritage for individuals, their communities and society.

The Foundation's goal is for heritage to be valued by everyone. Heritage is broadly defined in all its aspects-historical, natural, cultural, scientific, and technological. To enable the greatest possible access to the resources of heritage institutions and organizations, the Foundation has become a leader in the development of online learning resources. The Foundation's extensive collection of websites can be found at AlbertaSource-home of the Alberta Online Encyclopedia.
