We are all Dinos

Alberta was once one of the richest dinosaur habitats in the planet. The landscape around Calgary thundered with the footsteps of ferocious creatures competing for domination. Today, our Dinos community channels that same fierce drive for supremacy on the court, field, ice, and waves – and in our relentless pursuit of new knowledge and innovation.
