Keeping the Peace: Early Policing in North Central Alberta

January 28–Mid November, 2020 at Musée Héritage Museum(St. Albert Place, 5 St. Anne Street, St. Albert)

Here’s an opportunity for you and your family to get a fascinating glimpse of law enforcement in North-Central Alberta; from First Nations and Métis concepts of justice, to modern civic and national law enforcement.

Keeping the Peace is produced in partnership with the Fort Heritage Precinct. It describes the evolution of policing in areas around St. Albert, Edmonton and Fort Saskatchewan including the creation of the North West Mounted Police, Alberta Provincial Police, and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.

Covering hundreds of years of history, the exhibition will introduce you to the first policeman in St. Albert, describe the “Laws of the Buffalo Hunt” that the Métis used to manage large groups of people from different communities, and look at how the arrival of policing bodies from settler communities affected the people of the region.


St. Albert History Gallery

Opened April 1, 2017 at the Musée Héritage Museum (St. Albert Place, 5 St. Anne Street, St. Albert)

The St. Albert History Gallery is a space for diverse stories that touch on our long and complex past and our current place in the world. Each year, we change aspects of the gallery to bring in new narratives and new objects from our collections, and to highlight stories from the community.

It is a space where we can answer questions about important issues like residential schools and immigration, as well as the history of the Mission and City of St. Albert. In our rapidly changing world, it is important to remember that our past can teach us lessons which help us to enjoy and appreciate our community, understand current events and face future challenges.
