Scholarships and bursaries opportunities.

Municipal District of Lesser Slave River has recently announced a new grant program called the Community Assistance Board (CAB) grant. It is available to not-for-profit community organizations in an effort to enhance social programming, community events and facilities, as well as other amenities located within the municipality. The program will have four intakes during the year (January, April, July and September) and applications will be evaluated on the project’s alignment to the MD’s community values.

In addition to this new program, groups will also have access to funding through the Municipal District’s Public Transit Operating Assistance Grant, its Family and Community Support Services (FCSS) program as well as various provincial programs including:

  • Community Facility Enhancement Program (CFEP) Grant. Click here for more information.

    Life, Work and Leisure in Lesser Slave River

    As goods and people come from Edmonton via steamboat, a small outpost called Mirror Landing was founded 70 km east of Sawridge, opposite what is now the Smith townsite. It supplied those making the journey to the Peace Country, and offered weary travellers food and rest. Visit the Municipal History section to learn more about our region's rich heritage.
