Lifeways Canmore

Lifeways is a social enterprise actively participating in reconciliation in Canada and internationally. Our shop & gallery space showcases the work of local First Nations artists and is dedicated to a thriving intercultural community. Our artisan partners sustain their families and traditional cultures through the sale of their art and cultural work.

Lifeways offers an ethical space to encourage a shift in relations and perceptions by bringing together visitors, indigenous artisans and elders in an open, collaborative and meaningful environment.

Our vision is to establish Lifeways as a place of innovation; a supportive space that builds on strengths and commonalities and incubates innovative solutions to pressing social needs.

We invite you to join us as cultural allies of our local First Nations people.
