Welcome to Big Lakes

Welcome to the Municipal District of Big Lakes, Alberta, Canada! We hope that you will find our web pages useful and informative. We have tried to provide you with plenty of information on our municipal government and our district.

The M.D. of Big Lakes can be found in west central northern Alberta. The M.D. encompasses almost 15,000 square kilometers of area with a population of 5,912. We have a diverse region, characterized by farmland, lush forests, and big lakes, of course. Our main industries include forestry, oil and gas, and agriculture. Lesser Slave Lake, Utikuma Lake, Winagami Lake, and Snipe Lake are the largest lakes lying within the M.D.'s boundaries, which offer wonderful opportunities for camping, fishing and the ultimate outdoor experience!

Look to the M.D. of Big Lakes and you will also find economic prospects combined with an atmosphere conducive to those seeking quiet rural living with all amenities close at hand.

On behalf of the M.D. of Big Lakes Council and staff, thank you for visiting us!
