Life, Work and Leisure in Lesser Slave River

As the Sawridge townsite grew, the name changed to Slave Lake in 1923. The community was built on the banks of the Lake and by 1935 disaster struck, flooding the hamlet – a new townsite was founded approximately two and a half miles south, where the heart of Slave Lake is located today. Visit the Municipal History section to learn more about our region's rich heritage.
