Residents

Welcome to the Slave Lake Region!

Whether you are a new resident or have been here a while, we would like to extend a warm welcome to you and provide information and resources for everyone to become fully engaged in the communities that make up the Slave Lake Region. A Resident Welcome Package is available for download for newcomers, which includes the Community Profile, maps of the region and pertinent information related to living in the region.

The Slave Lake Region encompasses the Town of Slave Lake, the Sawridge First Nation, and nine outlying communities in the Municipal District of Lesser Slave River No. 124 – Assinau, Canyon Creek, Widewater, Wagner, Marten Beach, Smith, Hondo, Chisholm and Flatbush.

The Town of Slave Lake is a 2.5 hour drive from Edmonton, which allows families to grow in a small and integrated community but also provides easy access to the big city. Residents have numerous ways to get involved and engaged in their communities, whether through sport and recreation or through service clubs. Recreation programming such as hockey, figure skating, soccer and volleyball are enjoyed during the winter, and baseball, basketball, tennis and cricket are offered during the summer months. Service clubs such as the Rotary Club, Royal Canadian Legion, the Elks, and others come together to build a better community; projects recently completed by local groups are the Rotary Club of Slave Lake Library and the Multi-Rec Centre Fieldhouse.
