Legislative Assembly of Alberta Invites Albertans to sing O Canada

Category: News

Edmonton – Calling all Alberta choir singers – whether you sing in a school choir, a community choir, church choir or seniors choir, the Speaker of the Legislative Assembly of Alberta is inviting you to put your name forward to lead the singing of our national anthem in the Assembly during the fall session.

“The legislature is the people’s house and we want to give Albertans passionate about sharing their voice an opportunity,” said Cooper. “I encourage Albertans to let us know if they are interested in singing O Canada to help MLAs begin the important work they do every week.”

During session, the 87 Members of the Assembly are led in the singing of O Canada every Monday afternoon at 1:30 p.m. Traditionally the song has been led by an anthem singer but this fall the Assembly hopes to see more community participants lend their voices to this important task.

Singers who would like to put their name(s) forward can contact the Speaker’s Office by email at
