Life, Work and Leisure in Lesser Slave River
Legendary Lesser Slave River
On May 15, 2011, large parts of Lesser Slave River were affected by wildfires in the area. Winds pushed the flames into the Town and surrounding communities, destroying many houses and businesses. The actions of the MD and its residents, and as their stoic resolution to rebuild from the ashes, are a living testament to the region’s “Rugged & Real” motto. Visit the Municipal History
section to learn more about our region's rich heritage.
