Established in 1853, making it one of the oldest communities in Alberta, it was one of the first Albertan sites for exchanges between the Native, Metis, Francophone, and Anglophones populations.
Lac La Biche Mission Historical Site offers visitors an opportunity to discover the Mission’s significant contributions to the settlement of Northern Alberta.
