Message from the City of St. Albert

The City recognizes that some of our public information needs to be updated to accurately reflect the tragic history of the residential school system and those responsible. We will work with local Indigenous partners to address this, and while we recognize the urgency, we are striving to do this in a respectful and proper manner. We understand that true change will require true action.
