Alberta Wildfire Updates

Check the Alberta Wildfire restrictions before you head out.

The MD of Lesser Slave River lies within the boundaries of two different Forest Protection Areas: the Lac La Biche Forest Protection Area and the Slave Lake Forest Protection Area. The Lac La Biche Forest Protection Area refers to any MD land located south of the Athabasca River, and the Slave Lake Forest Protection Area refers to MD land to the river's north.

Forest Protection Areas are the domain of Alberta Agriculture and Forestry.

It is the duty of the MD to communicate, and encourage compliance with, any ordinance from Alberta Agriculture and Forestry. Use the links below for vital updates on the status of each of the Forest Protection Areas within the MD.
