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.
