The Fort Museum and GreenStep

The Fort Museum of the NWMP and First Nations Interpretive Centre has undergone a comprehensive assessment to achieve Sustainable Tourism Silver Certified. The process includes a one-on-one review of our business practices with a GreenStep Assessor to see how we’re doing comparatively to the Global Sustainable Tourism Council recognized criteria.

GreenStep Sustainability focuses on the following:

  • Management (includes community and staff engagement, marketing and communications, destination management, etc.)
  • Social and Economic Impacts
  • Natural and Cultural Interactions
  • Environmental Impacts

Following the assessment, we received a report that recognizes where we are doing well, and also highlights areas where we have opportunities for improvement, helping us to form an action plan for continued success on our sustainability journey. We will be reassessed every two years to maintain our certification and our momentum.

Our goal is to keep improving our sustainability efforts to protect the rich land and culture we have around the museum and the community and allow it to flourish. We invite you to join us on our sustainability journey.
The Fort Museum of the NWMP and First Nations Interpretive Centre is grateful to have the opportunity to meet and work on Treaty 7 territory. As settlers on these lands, it is important to acknowledge that we are located on the unceded territory of the Niitsitapi (Blackfoot Nation), including Siksika, Piikani, Kainai, the Tsuut’ina Nation and the Stoney Nakoda First Nations, as well as the Metis Nation Region 3. We want to express our respect for the territory we reside in and honour the diverse Indigenous People who have lived and worked on this land historically and presently. We, the staff, and leadership at The Fort Museum, are committed to being active participants in reconciliation. We are committed to actively working through programs and displays to decolonize the Blackfoot voice in our spaces.
