Welcome to Alberta’s largest county. Located in the northwestern corner of the province approximately 700 kilometers from Edmonton, with the corporate office located in Fort Vermilion, and sub-offices in High Level, La Crete, and Zama City. The County comprises 12 percent of Alberta’s entire landmass; at just over 80,000 square kilometers it is larger than the province of New Brunswick.
The County offers a mix of flat arable land with boreal forest, thus accounting for active agriculture, forestry, and tourism industries which drive the economies of the County’s three hamlets: Fort Vermilion, La Crete, and Zama City. Mackenzie County has experienced significant growth since 1998, and the trend is continuing as many businesses and newcomers recognize the unique lifestyle and employment opportunities the County provides.
