Welcome to the Heritage Boiler Association (Alberta). We are a group of steam enthusiasts from all over the Province of Alberta, and beyond. Corporately, we work closely with the Alberta Boilers Safety Association to provide certification and training services for operating heritage boilers. Individually, we like getting our hands dirty exhibiting and maintaining antique steam-driven tractors and equipment.

Upcoming Events

Here are a few steam events that HBAA members may be interested in. For more information on any event, please contact the museum or organization directly. To let us know of any other events that you think should be listed here, send us a note from the Contact page.
