Métis Crossing is the first major Métis cultural interpretive center in Alberta. The development and operation of this facility mirrors the core values of the Métis community including self-sufficiency, respect of elders, participation of youth, and pride in our culture.Métis Crossing began as a major initiative of the Métis Nation of Alberta. Our mission is to be a premiere center for Alberta Métis cultural interpretation, education, gatherings, and business development. Our 512-acre site is designed to engage and excite visitors, and is comprised of river lot titles from the original Métis settlers to this region in the late 1800’s. Our programming encourages active participation of visitors in activities that promote appreciation of our people, customs, and celebrations.
