In 1945, the Department of Economic Affairs Act, Government of Alberta established the Department of Economic Affairs to encourage economic, social, and cultural development for the province of Alberta. In 1959, the Government of Alberta repealed the Department of Economic Affairs Act. Responsibility for the branches and activities of the Department of Economic Affairs, with the exception of the Industrial Development, transferred to the Department of the Provincial Secretary including the Cultural Activities Branch, the Film and Photographic Branch, the Publicity Bureau, the Travel Bureau, Alberta House (in London, England), the Provincial Jubilee Auditorium and the Southern Area Office. Effective April 1, 1961, responsibility for the Travel Bureau, the Publicity Branch and the Film and Photographic Branch transferred to the Department of Industry and Development. Administration of the Alberta House and its Agent-General transferred to Department of Industry and Commerce on April 1, 1970.
In 1998, Jane Orydzuk (nee Maynard) donated the material to the Provincial Archives of Alberta. Jane Orydzuk received the film from her father, Lucien Maynard.
