Welcome to the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo, Alberta

Wood Buffalo ranks by area, as one of the largest municipalities in North America encompassing 68,454 square kilometers.

The municipality was established in April 1995 through the amalgamation of the City of Fort McMurray and Improvement District No. 143.

Commonly referred to and thought of as a city, Fort McMurray is unincorporated and therefore has the status of being the largest unincorporated “city” in Alberta.

We are excited to welcome Alberta’ top young athletes, coaches and parents to our area.
