“Thanksgiving is about family and gratitude. Every autumn, family and friends gather on this special day to give thanks for all that we have and all the blessings yet to come.

“We have so much to be thankful for. Alberta is a community of different cultures, faiths and peoples. It is a place where you are not measured by where you come from, where you pray or who you love. It is a place where all of those who choose to live here, work or raise a family can succeed, and take part in the same dream that drew the first settlers here hundreds of years ago. It is a province of innovation, determination and vision – and has been throughout its history.

“Whether it’s volunteering or investing, building businesses or communities, each action is shaping our province into a strong, inclusive and prosperous society. This Thanksgiving, no matter how you celebrate, let’s all be thankful for all the ways that people make Alberta a great place to be.”
