Telling their Stories to Canadians

If you ask Canadians what they know about Fort McMurray or Wood Buffalo, you’re bound to hear a lot of things including, “there are plenty of jobs there”, “it’s where the oilands are” or “I have a friend who worked there once”.  One of the best ways to learn about a place – we believe – is to hear directly from the men, women and children who live there now.

It's the people living in our region that makes it a community worth living in.  And they aren't just here to make money and leave; they are shaping their neighborhoods, getting involved and giving back to a place that offers so much. And it’s their Big Spirit and desire to share their story that helps to inspire others to see Wood Buffalo as their home too.
