Multiculturalism

Here in Fort McMurray we are a very diverse community. People from all around the world travel here to live and work. In addition, our community continues to grow! That’s why many different community groups support and encourage people from every background. For example, the following community groups all thrive in our city.

First Nations Communities

Fort McMurray sits on Treaty 8 Territory. Today, there are five First Nations communities within the RMWB. They include: Mikisew Cree First Nation, Athabasca Chipewyan First Nation, Fort McKay First Nation, Fort McMurray No. 468 First Nation and Chipewyan Prairie Dene First Nation. Métis peoples are represented by six Métis Locals.

Diversity and Multiculturalism

The Fort McMurray Multicultural groups were set up for three reasons. First, to help the many newcomers to the city. Second, to give a helping hand. And third, to help new residents feel at home. You can find more information on each group on the Fort McMurray Multiculturalism web page, MCAWB.org. Also, many multicultural events within the community happen all year long. Most groups host an events page on their website. If you think Fort McMurray could be your new home, then contact us today!
