The Alberta Association of Architects published their Chronicle of Significant Alberta Architecture[1] in February 2003 (Phase One) and August 2005 (Phase 2). The project's main goal was to ensure that the public, as well as those with a professional interest in the subject, could easily identify architecturally significant structures developed and still standing in Alberta. The project was undertaken in association with the Government of Alberta (Phase 1 associated with the ministry of Employment, Immigration and Industry and Phase 2 associated with ministry of Economic Development).
