Indigenous communities in Wood Buffalo

Wood Buffalo is home to seven First Nations communities. These communities have their own nation-to-nation relationship with the Federal Government and will be considering the Federal Government’s decision to legalize recreational cannabis at their own discretion.

This being the case, the Municipality recognizes this relationship and is focused on the legalization of recreational cannabis in the Urban Service Area (Fort McMurray) and the Rural Service Area (our rural communities) in the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo.
