Welcome to the Western Canadian Heritage Foundation and the Western Canadian Heritage Museum website. To find out more about the Foundation and the online Museum, please visit the About page.

We invite you to visit our numerous portfolios in our online Museum depicting many historical photos in the Gallery.

If you have suggestions for new portfolios, we invite you to make those suggestions.

Lastly, if you want to contact the WCH Foundation and the Museum to make either a monetary contribution or submit photographs and historical data in support of this work, you may send a message here.
