Fort Calgary Preservation Society
When you visit Fort Calgary, you stand on the traditional territory of the Blackfoot and the people of Treaty 7, including the Siksika, the Piikani, the Kainai; the Tsuut’ina; and the Bearspaw, Chiniki and Wesley Nations of the Stoney-Nakoda. This land is also home to the Métis Nation of Alberta, Region 3.
This is where the North West Mounted Police arrived in 1875 and built the Fort which became the foundation for the city of Calgary. In just under 150 years, Calgary grew from a tiny outpost to a city of over 1.5 million people. It is where diverse worldviews collided, forever changing the people and the place.
Our interpretive center is open every day 9 AM-5 PM, except New Year's Day, Good Friday, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year's Eve.
