Jasper the Bear
In 1948, artist James Simpkins created Jasper the Bear for Maclean’s Magazine. Jasper the Bear was adopted by the Town of Jasper as their mascot and has become a beloved figure for the community.
This statue was erected in September 2004 and Jasper Tourism & Commerce acknowledges the support of the CIBC in honouring this local treasure.
