Absolutely love this gallery. We have bought many things over the years from jewelry to paintings. Service is outstanding. I am in Edmonton and watch their emails, in case I see something I want! I bought a painting last month, delivered to us promptly and well packaged and safe on arrival!

The staff at Canada House was exceptional. Daniel was extremely accommodating and even facilitated working directly with an artist to create a custom piece of art. I'd highly recommend working with them.

Unlike some of the Galleries in the UK the staff are so helpful and really appreciate you visiting the gallery to view the art work produced by native artist, you can tell the staff have a real passion for the art, especially Amber who took the time to talk to us about some of the pieces produced by Stewart Steinhauer especially his bears, he defiantly brings them to life with one piece especially that court our eye.

Amber provided all the details we needed and even followed up with an email on the piece it’s it just a shame we were on our way home the next day and had not visited the gallery sooner although we had been lucky to purchase a couple of pieces by Katherine Jenkinson while we were in Banff. I am certain we will be back in contact with Canada House Art Galleries as my wife certainly fell in love with Stewart Steinhauer’s work we just have to find a home for one of his bears that will do it justice.

I love looking in art galleries and this one was quite impressive. I feel like they offer a variety of art that would pleasing to differing tastes. They were very welcoming the minute you walked in the door and offered to help you look for additional artwork. If you're a dog lover, go meet Roscoe! And, I really liked that the store did not look touristy. Even if you aren't looking to buy, just stop by to appreciate the art.

Hi Kladry!! Thank you so much for your recent visit to the gallery and we're so pleased that you loved enjoying our art AND gallery dog! Roscoe is usually in the back room but once in a while he sneaks out for a belly rub by clients and gallery friends! We really believe that quality & a friendly atmosphere is key! We are so proud of our artists and the works they send us to share with visitors and repeat clients! THANK YOU - we look forward to your next visit.

I always stop here when I am in Banff. The art is very diverse and interesting. They have enlarged the shop since my last visit. I missed buying a painting by minutes. I should have acted on my impulse when I entered the gallery.

Hello woodmister!! Thanks so much for your repeated visits to the gallery! Yes! We expanded in July 2016... so the gallery now extends from corner to corner (Caribou & Bear Streets to Caribou & Lynx Streets). We're sorry you missed out on your favourite piece this time - if you'd like we're happy to add you to our email list to keep you in the loop on new arrivals! Of course we can ship to you wherever you live! Thanks again for your ongoing support of our artists - we look forward to seeing you again when you're in Banff. Sincerely, Barbara Pelham

We have been long time customers of Canada House and this time, had to leave after a few minutes. Unfortunately, they confirmed that they are using a scent disperser. My wife had to immediately pull out her asthma puffer. I am amazed that in this day and age, with the number of asthma and allergy sufferers, that retail companies are starting this. We won't be back. The Canadian Asthma Association says there are over 3 million asthma sufferers in Canada. We mentioned it to staff and they seemed unconcerned and said only 2% of people had a problem with it. I guess we don't count.

Hello David I, YES you do matter!!!! I'm sorry you had a troubling experience at our gallery. And I apologize for the tardy reply. As you probably know, we have been in the same location for 41 years... and as the building is older, sometimes we experience some funky scents. So we use a dry-air technology that releases fragrance without sprays, aerosols or heated oils. My son and other clients that are asthmatic do not experience trouble with this system. However, you obviously did, and we apologize for this. We would love for your continued visits.... and we would be happy to turn our scent machine off before your visit. Please feel free to call me or email me and let me know when you'll be in Banff and at the gallery. We are very happy to accomodate you. We look forward to seeing you again, Sincerely, Barbara Pelham owner Canada House Gallery 1-800-419-1298 info@canadahouse.com

A trip to Banff isn't complete without a visit to Canada House. Not only are these people incredibly knowledgeable about every piece and every artist they showcase, they also share their passion for art and people. They love what they do and it shows. A commited group of friendly fun loving art enthusiasts. Their reach is beyond their doors in the many aspects of community inovlement as well.

Thank you Canada House for making another corner of heaven right here in Banff.

I am an expat Canadian living in Australia and discovered Canada House when I returned for a holiday in the Rockies with my Australian family. I bought a Page Ough that trip and they shipped it to me in Australia without a hitch. Since then I have acquired another Page Ough, 2 x Allen Sapp and have commissioned a Terry Gilecki. They all arrived in perfect condition. I would highly reccomend this gallery to those overseas art enthusiasts visiing the Rockies and those who may wish to dabble in an online Art Purchase. You really do get what you see with Canada House. SJW

We have bought several paintings from there over the years. We always stop by to see what they have new even when we are not in the market. They have a broad selection.
