The aim of the These Places Matter project is to engage Fernie residents by providing an accessible digital space for sharing information, while telling inclusive stories about places of significance . We hope this website will appeal to Fernie residents, newcomers, visitors, students, and researchers, who are interested in local cultural history. Users will access it as a resource guide and as a tool to increase awareness about our community’s past and present.

We welcome comments, feedback, quotes, stories, information and questions in our “submit your story” form. Your contributions will help shape the webpage and its content. Thank you for your online submissions, via the “submit your story” section. We do reserve the right to edit, modify and omit content received.
