History

Le Salon d’histoire de la francophonie albertaine a été fondé en 1974 par deux professeurs de l’Université de l’Alberta: Soeur Alice Trottier du Collège universitaire Saint-Jean (devenue le Campus Saint-Jean) et Kenneth J. Munro du département d’histoire. Dès le départ, le Salon d’histoire s’est fixé l’objectif de mieux faire connaître l’histoire des Franco-albertains. Il a pour but de permettre aux Franco-albertains, particulièrement à ceux d’Edmonton, de mieux connaître leur histoire locale et, par conséquent de se mieux connaître. Le Salon d’histoire a organisé, depuis sa fondation, plusieurs causeries et conférences, une table ronde et un symposium à l’occasion du 50ème anniversaire du journal La Survivance. Les rencontres ont abordés des sujets tels que l’histoire des Franco-albertains, le théâtre français d’Edmonton, l’ACFA, la politique, l’éducation, l’oeuvre du père Lacombe, et autres. Le Salon a aussi publié divers livres et bulletins d’information.

The Salon d’histoire de la francophonie albertaine was founded in 1974 by two professors from the University of Alberta: Sister Alice Trottier of the Collège universitaire Saint-Jean (now Campus Saint-Jean) and Kenneth J. Munro from the department of history. From its inception, the Salon d’histoire aimed to bring more awareness to the history of Franco-Albertans. Its goal was to allow Franco-Albertans, particularly those in Edmonton, to learn more about their local history and consequently get to know more about each other. Since its foundation, the Salon organized several talks and conferences, a round table and a symposium regarding the 50th anniversary of the journal La Survivance. These events dealt with topics such as Franco-Albertan history, French theatre in Edmonton, l’ACFA, politics, education, the work of father Lacombe, and more. The Salon also published various books from various authors as well as information bulletins for community members.
