TERRITORIAL ACKNOWLEDGEMENT

We are located on traditional territories of the Blackfoot and the people of the Treaty 7 region in Southern Alberta, which includes the Siksika, the Piikuni, the Kainai, the Tsuut’ina and the Iyethka Nakoda First Nations, including Chiniki, Bearspaw, and Wesley First Nation. The City of Calgary is also home to Métis Nation of Alberta, Region III. Respectfully, we acknowledge that we share the land as people of Treaty 7.

ABOUT >> past

 
Located near downtown in Calgary’s South West quadrant, the name Sunalta likely means “Sunny Alberta.”

 

The area was established as a residential community in 1909. In the 1950s, Sunalta was re-zoned to contain a number of apartment-style walkups. Read about the history of our community in our HISTORICAL ARTICLES collection.
