By purchasing this calendar you are supporting SEEDS Connections, Alberta high school students, and schools wanting to create a world in which we all wish to live. Thank you. On behalf of the Government of Alberta, it is my pleasure to share my support for the SEEDS Connections Program’s 2018 Diversity Calendar Project. This calendar project highlights the many incredible events taking place across Alberta, and offers the chance to be captivated by the wide-ranging celebrations and events throughout 2018. In Alberta, a community of many heritages and customs, our province’s social, cultural, and spiritual diversity gives us strength, and I am proud this calendar showcases that diversity. My greatest thanks go to the students and schools whose leadership in the creation of this calendar has captured the beauty of Alberta’s diverse and inclusive society so well. Your hard work and dedication show just how much residents of our beautiful province have to celebrate. Rachel Notley 2018
