Alberta's Own exists to showcase the incredible talent of this province, lifting up our creative entrepreneurs and helping them build profitable, sustainable businesses so they can support their families and follow their passion.
The shop represents nearly 150 makers, craftsmen and women, and artists from all across Alberta, featuring everything from home decor and art, to bath and body, men's grooming products, baby items, jewelry, gifts, and more.
Nestled near the Banff National Park gates in the beautiful Rocky Mountain town of Canmore, the view outside is as gorgeous as the goods you'll find inside. Check out our Pinterest for travel ideas!
Owner Laura Bodell finds joy in sharing the stories of Alberta's Own makers and products, and thrives on helping other business owners grow and flourish. In her own travels, she's always sought out treasures that represented a true piece of the place she was visiting, and so being able to offer that same excitement to Canmore's visitors is one of her favourite things about having the shop.
Visitors will be greeted by Hayes the shop dog, who usually has lots of stories to share. He's a toy-sized Australian shepherd with plenty of personality, and a bit of ego to match since being featured in a "Shop Dogs of Canmore" segment on CTV's The National.
