About the Exhibit
1967: Edmonton and Canada's Centennial
In 1967 Canada marked 100 years of Confederation, and Edmontonians dove headfirst into the celebrations. Parties were planned and monuments were built. This exhibit explores how the City, Province, and private individuals and organizations all came together to create projects that celebrated the anniversary and Edmonton’s place in Canada.
