Thank you to our sponsors at the Edmonton & District Historical Society, the Phyllis Arnold Learning Fund, and at Nutrien!

As part of Fort Saskatchewan’s Canada Day celebrations, the 1875 North West Mounted Police Fort at the Fort Heritage Precinct will be open, free of charge, from 1pm – 6pm on July 1, 2018! The Warden’s Residence gift shop will be open as well, and costumed interpreters and volunteers will be stationed throughout the Fort to interact with visitors. We are especially excited to welcome Running Thunder, a group of Indigenous dancers, who will be performing in the NWMP Fort at 1:15pm.

"The facilities we experienced were authentic and helped us gain a genuine understanding of what it was like at the Precinct over 100 years ago."
