The objective of the Chinook Country Historical Society is "to promote a greater understanding of Canadian and Alberta history in Chinook Country for people of all ages." CCHS, in part, promotes its objectives through:

  • A Monthly Program of presentations of historical interest from September 2014 through May 2015;

  • Sponsoring books and anthologies that highlight Calgary and Alberta's history

Members Present: This is a section on our web page that gives basic information about presentations on history or related topics of potential interest to you that are being made by some of our members that are not part of the regular CCHS programming.

Note a new addition to Members Present: Calgary Association of Lifelong Learners, (CALL) is a new, not for profit, member led group dedicated to organizing innovative, affordable learning opportunities for people 45 and over. Follow this link for more information.
