About this app

History Check© is a multi-purpose, map-based travel app. Whether you are looking for a great restaurant, want to learn some local history, or find recreational activities in a specific area, History Check© is for you.

You will be able to see what is around you using the “Near Me” feature or any of the 650+ Community Menus and choose between 5 categories to explore and experience.

If you are looking for something specific use the “Search” feature (found under the Menu tab). Keywords include everything from fuel, specific foods, types of businesses, and names from Alberta’s past. The list keeps growing.

Find details about sites by opening their map or list display. There are two types of ‘Point of Interest’ listings; historical information and local businesses. Historical information includes images (where available) and additional links. Other listings can include image(s), product/service descriptions, available contact information, links to websites and social media pages. All sites may include other regional links to give you more to explore and experience in that area.

With thousands of site listings, our content continues to grow as we partner with organizations, governing bodies, and interested individuals to provide self-guided tours across Alberta.

Interaction is encouraged. Share your finds on social media, make a comment, take a selfie! Suggest other sites to be added to the app, by using the Blue Arrow on the left and “Submit a Point of Interest”.

A new gaming feature will be added (2021). Each unique event, tour, or challenge will be organized by partnering organizations and potentially have prizes awarded. This flexibility in design provides the opportunity to purposefully explore different areas of Alberta. Selfies, images, or trivia may all be a part of these scavenger hunt type tours.

Use the History Check© app to experience Alberta and share so others can discover our diverse province!
