Métis Crossing is the first major Métis cultural interpretive centre in Alberta and is a premier centre for Alberta Métis cultural interpretation, education, gatherings, and business development. We are pleased to offer the ability to host your large event. Our Cultural Gathering Centre is the perfect place to host a corporate meeting, team building activity, or a unique celebration.

Cultural Immersion

Métis Crossing is a place for Métis people to share our distinct Indigenous Story with the world, and a place for everyone to visit to reflect and reconnect with their own personal story. By hosting your corporate retreat or event here, you set the stage for a day of learning on historical Métis land.

Sitting on 688-acres of land, comprised of river lot titles from the original Métis settlers to the region in the late 1800s, the Crossing is designed to engage and excite visitors through an exploration of Métis cultural experiences. The surroundings will be the perfect place for your attendees to stretch their legs during breaks.

During your time at Métis Crossing, you can indulge in our Métis-inspired prepared by our expert chefs. We proudly feature premium, locally sourced bison, and seasonal produce at Métis Crossing. You can also further immerse your guests in the experience with our wide variety of accommodation options – from outdoor campsites to our boutique lodge, we have something to fit every need and preference.

The Cultural Gathering Centre is designed by Métis Architect Tiffany Shaw-Collinge from Manasc Isaac Architects.
