Impact Tourism is a company located in Northern Alberta. Our primary project is the History Check Heritage & Travel Companion App. A collaborative initiative, History Check is a project built by Albertans, for Albertan
Originally started under the umbrella of the non-profit “Friends of Historical Northern Alberta Society”, History Check was moved to the management of Impact Tourism in late 2018, where the co-creators Sheila Willis, Project Manager, and Scott Astle, Technology Consultant, are able to move forward with this collaborative effort to bring it to its full potential as a ready made, all inclusive app for regions & marketing sectors.
History Check started as a grass roots initiative to share the sites and stories of Northern Alberta’s history. Once the concept, and app building began, we soon realized that this simple and easy to use heritage app could also be used to showcase all attractions, services and other amenities for Alberta travelers. It was at that point “History Check” became a heritage & travel companion app.
History Check was released as a beta version in October of 2017 and by June of 2019 History Check had gone Alberta wide. With a small team of people, and a lot of collaboration across the province, more and more sites are being added daily and downloads are growing. We are encouraging crowd sourcing of information to ensure not spots are missed as the app develops.
