Be part of the legacy. #Canada150  

Airdrie residents are invited to participate in capturing the city’s history by assisting with the creation of a Canada 150 Time Capsule as part of the Canada 150 Legacy Art Project. In collaboration with Artist James Smith, the Airdrie Canada 150 Committee is asking residents to contribute special mementos to be placed in the time capsule that will be opened on Canada’s Bicentennial in 2067.

The time capsule will be located in Airdrie’s Nose Creek Park within a newly commissioned Airdrie 150 Legacy Art Project that will be unveiled this summer.

Time capsule requirements:

  • Mementos should fall within an: 80 cubic inch or 1333 cu. cm. maximum size limit.
  • Objects made of rubber cannot be accepted since rubber deteriorates over time, releasing sulfur.
  • Polyvinyl acetate (PVAC) or PVC, including plastic food wrap, cannot be accepted as they will deteriorate even in a sealed capsule and release acids as they age.

Contributions will be accepted by mail or in person until May 1, 2018 at the Nose Creek Valley Museum located at 1701 Main Street SW. The Museum is open Monday to Friday from 1 – 5 p.m. and Saturday to Sunday from 1 – 4:30 p.m.
