Alberta Day 2022

The Government of Alberta recently established September 1 as Alberta Day in perpetuity. Alberta Day is a chance to celebrate who we are as Albertans and what we can achieve together. Alberta Day will be a chance for communities across Alberta to come together and celebrate everything that makes this province special.

To create a province-wide celebration of our heritage and cultural identity, the Government of Alberta is providing funding through Alberta Municipalities so that eligible Alberta communities can host local Alberta Day events on Saturday, September 3, 2022.

Funding will be distributed across three categories based on a per capita model as follows:

  • Municipalities with populations greater than 10,000 will be eligible for up to $10,000;

  • Municipalities with populations between 1,000 and 10,000 will be eligible for up to $5,000; and

  • Municipalities with populations less than 1,000 will be eligible for $1,500.

Municipalities are encouraged to submit a completed Expressions of Interest Application with details about the activities you are planning. Please download and complete the following forms and e-mail them as attachments to the csw.event [at] (csw[dot]event[at]gov[dot]ab[dot]ca) by August 12, 2022.


Should you have any questions or require assistance, please e-mail csw.event [at] (csw[dot]event[at]gov[dot]ab[dot]ca).
