Today, Currie stands as a beacon of new urbanism, linking past, present and future in one brilliant setting. Known well by generations of Canadians, Currie’s rich heritage dates back to the 1930s where it began as a Canadian Armed Forces Base. Originally created as an employment project during the Great Depression, it represents a significant milestone for the military’s establishment in Alberta. Since then, Currie has continued its legacy of optimism, momentum and positive growth.
Currie acknowledges the 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 Stoney Nakoda First Nations, including Chiniki, Bearspaw, and Wesley First Nation. The City of Calgary is also home to the Métis Nation of Alberta, Region III.
