Canada 150

Celebrating the sesquicentennial in style.

2017 marks Canada’s 150th Anniversary of Confederation. That means all year long, communities across the nation will be doing their part to celebrate Canada’s sesquicentennial in style – and Lesser Slave River is no exception. As a region that’s well-known for playing just as hard as it works, Lesser Slave River’s festival and cultural event planners are pulling out all stops to ensure an unforgettable 150th.

All year long, the MD of Lesser Slave River will be doing its part to showcase the splendour of the region to travelers from afar and home-grown locals alike. The MD is nearing completion of its piece of the Trans Canada Trail. This coast-to-coast marvel is designed to help Canadians get out and explore the nation.
