Travel Alberta’s 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.

These stories are authentic accounts that showcase a great variety and diversity of Alberta activities and experiences and motivate sharing through traditional and social media channels. They 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.

The first phase of the Alberta Stories program saw the development of 15 new videos with the support of many industry partners with inspiring summer story ideas. Phase one videos can also be viewed on YouTube. Filming has just been completed on the third phase of the Alberta Stories program. These videos are now in production and will be released in Spring 2014. Selections for the fourth phase of the program will be confirmed in December 2013 and filming will start January / February 2014.

Go ahead and use Alberta Stories in your own marketing initiatives! Share the videos in your own social media channels, embed them from our YouTube Channel or use them on your own websites.
