In May 2011, wildfires tore through the Slave Lake Region devastating our communities through the loss of homes, businesses and community facilities. In the wake of these wildfires, twelve petroleum companies came together and consulted with local stakeholders on ideas for a lasting legacy project. This led to plans for a new multi-purpose family oriented space, the Legacy Centre. These companies kick started the process with a $6.4 million donation. The Town of Slave Lake, Municipal District Lesser Slave River and Sawridge First Nation represented the region to further develop the project with community groups. The Government of Alberta supported this project with substantial additional funding.
The Legacy Centre
The Centre is an important aspect of the region’s recovery from the 2011 wildfires. This project brings together local government and community groups in an innovative partnership. The Centre will be the new home of the Slave Lake Elks Lodge and the Slave Lake Child Care Society. The community hall will include a 500 seat performing arts theatre with banquet facilities. It will also include a FireSmart interpretive area, First Nation cultural area and will meet the regional needs of a childcare centre. The Centre will also serve as an evacuation centre for the region.
