Exploring Wood Buffalo's Past

The name Wood Buffalo is more often associated with Canada’s largest national park and less so as one of its largest municipalities.  But this community and its people share a long and remarkable history that helped shape Canada’s origin as a fur trading nation and now plays a transformative role in the country's economic future.

Today, people from around the world call this unique region home, establishing a rich blend of individual stories and cultural histories which, in keeping with our national fabric, contribute to Canada’s celebrated multicultural experience.

From its geologic origins in Precambrian rock to its emerging status as Alberta’s third largest community, discover Wood Buffalo’s heritage and the men, women and children who call this region home.
