Fort McMurray, Alberta, known as “Fort Mac” resides right in the middle of the Athabasca oil sands on the Northeast side of the province. While mainly known for its services in the oil industry, this urban service area is rich in history.

Fort McMurray has museums and landmarks dedicated to sharing the history and industries present in the region. Get a glimpse into its large history with the Oil Sands Discovery Centre and the Fort McMurray Heritage Society.
There are also a lot of outdoor activities, green spaces, and adventure parks, such as Macdonald Island Park.
Fort McMurray is also known for its AHL hockey team, the Oil Barons. There are also many amateur teams for football, hockey, and rugby.
Just like the rest of Alberta, the weather in Fort McMurray can have extreme highs and extreme lows.
