Alberta World Cup

Here at the Alberta World Cup Headquarters, we are still sad about the cancellation but in the big scheme of things it was the right thing to do. We were about to launch the song commissioned for our event which is featured in our super fun video. A moving song from Leela Gilday - "Giants". In these tough times, internalize the message - it was directed at our athletes but hey, we are all "Giants" - check it out and enjoy the video and music? Thanks to Canmore Folk Music Festival and SOCAN Foundation for making this possible.
Thank you to all the athletes who took part in the filming of this video, you made this fun!
Thank you to the video producer Peter Collins Photography and film and edits by Francois Pelletier Photography.
