Educational Opportunities

Land based learning, it starts from the moment you arrive at Métis Crossing and step out onto the land. All activities have been created to foster a connection to the land, to encourage us to listen for the lessons it offers, to engage with all it has taught to those who came before us. These activities are rooted in Indigenous skills-sharing and knowledge-sharing practices that encourage learners to embrace a hands-on approach. This is how our Elders and knowledge keepers pass on their teachings and how we keep our knowledge and traditions alive.

Travel Trade

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 work with travel trade operators across the world to ensure they have unique experiences to offer their customers and clients.

It was great! The scenery, the lodge, the service too. I went there for a wedding and the place looked so wonderful; the vibes were so positive and everyone had a great time. This place felt like home.

Beautiful venue, in a beautiful setting! Top notch all around. For a wedding or a relaxing weekend away, it's a great spot!
