Our Alberta Stories initiative plays an important role in bringing Alberta’s tourism brand to life.
These documentary-style videos, shared from the perspective of the passionate enthusiast, showcase the true character and distinctive personalities at the core of Alberta’s tourism experiences and continue to deepen the connection we have with our audiences.
They are authentic accounts that showcase a great variety and diversity of Alberta activities and experiences and motivate sharing through traditional and social media channels.
These stories are meant to describe distinctive encounters a traveller might share or brag about. They could paint a vivid image of a region, show off a one-of-a-kind natural wonder or event, a thrilling tradition or even a fresh twist on a local delicacy.
We know our greatest resource for unique and entertaining Alberta Stories is you. As our eyes and ears, you know your regions best.
