Corporal Clarke is in need for a second officer at the Canmore NWMP Barracks. Do you know how to groom and ride a horse? Know how to make your bed with precesion? Have a superior knowledge of the area’s terrain? Then you just might be the person Corporal Clarke is looking for!
This fun drop-in program for the whole family highlights the storied history of the Canmore NWMP, from their arrival in the Bow Valley in 1887 to policing in Canmore until the 1930s.
Through interpretive storytelling, hands-on activities and crafts, the whole family will learn about the regimented life of officers stationed at the Barracks, the social issues facing the community that required the attention of the police, and the role of the Mounted Police in enforcing the pass system for Stoney Nakoda wishing to travel through the area.
