Something for everyonephoto courtesy Wood Buffalo National Park (WBNP)photo courtesy Wood Buffalo National Park (WBNP)

courtesy WBNPcourtesy WBNPWelcome to Fort Smith, a jewel in the middle of the boreal forest. Nestled along the banks of the mighty Slave River, Fort Smith is a friendly, multicultural community with a population of just over 2,400. This magnificent landscape, where the Slave River divides the boreal forest from the Canadian Shield, draws thousands of visitors each year.

Whether you are here for business, playing in a tournament, or just passing through, please take a look around. We have it all! Whitewater kayaking, hiking, biking, and golfing in the summer; snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, and dogsledding in the winter; it’s all available right here.

Come and take in the sights and sounds of the South Slave Friendship Festival in August, celebrate the Wood Buffalo Frolics winter carnival in March, or stop in and check out the displays at the Northern Life Museum and Cultural Centre at any time of year. Fort Smith is a wonderful place to visit.
