Tell us a story…

…a story about a town that, in 1911, had a population of less than 50 people. And yet, five short years later, grew to over 12,000 individuals.

…a story about a region that is world renowned for dinosaurs, yet once warmed the homes of Canadians for decades.

…a story about what “thunder in the valley” really meant, when 139 coal mines shook the walls of the Alberta badlands.

…a story about the baseball games, worker solidarity, and brothels that entertained miners and empowered communities through good times and bad.

Now, tell us a story of the over 210 souls who lost their lives to those same coal mines, and how their sacrifices impact what our history is today.

The Atlas Coal Mine National Historic Site immerses visitors in an unforgettable experience set in a diverse, historic landscape featuring the last wooden coal-sorting tipple in Canada. We take you underground, into the stunning Alberta badlands, so you can breathe, smell, and feel the life of a miner at a time when “coal was king.”

Are you ready to tell that story?

We at the Atlas are looking for a new Executive Director to help us continue building on those stories and our Mission:

We foster a sense of belonging by sharing the stories and experiences of the unique place that is Atlas Coal Mine – our story is part of Canada’s story.
