Supporting Fort McMurray
Travel Alberta's thoughts and support are with the people of Fort McMurray and emergency personnel as they cope with the effects of the wildfires in and around their city.
The wildfires are affecting the city of Fort McMurray and the surrounding Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo in northeastern Alberta, located 439 km (273 mi) north of Edmonton and 733 km (455 mi) north of Calgary. Alberta’s international airports in Calgary and Edmonton are unaffected.
Emergency personnel are working to contain the fires. Evacuation orders are still in effect.
All non-essential travel to Fort McMurray is currently restricted.
