Lac La Biche is a hamlet in the northeast region of Alberta. It’s about 220 kilometers northeast of Edmonton. It’s named after the historical voyageur route that linked the Athabasca Region to Hudson Bay. The lake in the area was referred to by the indigenous peoples as Elk Lake. Loosely translated in English to Red Deer Lake, and in French; Lac La Biche (Lake of the doe). The community is supported by logging, oil, forestry, agriculture, and commercial fishing.
