Message from Honourable Rachel Notley
Premier of Alberta
We are grateful to our partners whose
support made this project possible.
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.
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.
