The Fort McMurray Wood Buffalo region is a place like no other. It’s where a small-town feel is combined with extensive career opportunities, strong cultural diversity, family-orientated neighborhoods, world-class recreation facilities, and the natural beauty of the boreal forest.

The region is located within Treaty 8 Territory, the traditional lands of the Cree, Dene and unceded territory of the Métis. Comprising of Fort McMurray, 9 rural communities and 12 Indigenous communities, the diversity and rich cultures in the region are truly remarkable. We are committed to reconciliation and recognize our responsibility to understand our history so that we can honour the past, be aware of the present, and create a just and caring future for all.

Fort McMurray Wood Buffalo is a place for anyone and everyone to pursue opportunity together. With residents from all over the world and strengthened by a sense of resiliency, our community is a place where neighbours help neighbours, embrace differences, and honour the Indigenous heritage and traditions of the land. We are proud to call Fort McMurray Wood Buffalo home and we can’t wait to welcome you here!
