Additional Notes About Fort McMurray


Welcome to Fort McMurray and the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo.

We are located in northeast Alberta, nestled in the boreal forest at the confluence of four rivers. Fort McMurray, the largest city in the Municipality, is considered an urban service area.

Fort McMurray is a place immersed in natural beauty where land, sky and water meet. Canoe the historic travel and trade routes followed by early trappers and explores, explore the sand dunes, hike the trails, fish the pristine clear waters of Northern Alberta and gaze in awe at the Aurora Borealis. We are a nature lover’s paradise with the urban city feel.

In addition to Fort McMurray, the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo consists of ten smaller communities: Anzac, Conklin, Draper, Fort Chipewyan, Fort Fitzgerald, Fort MacKay, Gregoire Lake Estates, Janvier/Chard, Mariana Lakes and Saprae Creek Estates.
