Preamble

WHEREAS it is desirable that the cultural life of Alberta be enriched through the development of an increased knowledge and understanding of the arts, technology and social heritage of the human race and the natural world in which it lives;

WHEREAS the Glenbow Foundation of Calgary, a corporation established by the late Eric L. Harvie, Q.C., and his family, has made invaluable contributions to Alberta’s cultural life through the collection and preservation of objects of historical, cultural and scientific interest with special emphasis on objects related to the history of Western Canada;

WHEREAS the late Eric L. Harvie and his family proposed as their memorial to the Centennial of Canadian Confederation that the Glenbow Foundation, together with the collections, buildings and properties belonging to the Foundation, be vested in a body corporate having perpetual life for the lasting benefit of the people of Alberta and made a gift of $5 000 000 to aid in the establishment and operations of that body and to this end gave their undertaking in this connection, a copy of which undertaking is contained in the Schedule to this Act;

WHEREAS the encouragement and support of the humanities and natural sciences, while primarily a matter for private and local initiative, is also a proper matter of concern to the Government of Alberta and in accepting this generous gift on behalf of the people of Alberta it was considered appropriate that this Legislature grant an equal sum of money and make other provisions for the advancement of these objectives;

WHEREAS it was considered desirable to establish an institute to hold and administer these grants, and to foster historical, cultural and scientific activities in Alberta, and that institute was created by this statute when originally enacted on April 15, 1966; and

WHEREAS the name of the Harvie Foundation, referred to in this Act, has been changed to the “Devonian Foundation” and certain other changes have been made to this statute as originally enacted;
