Established in 1853 - making it one of the oldest communities in Alberta - the Lac La Biche Mission is a National Historic Site located on the shores of picturesque Lac La Biche lake. This 45-acre site, including several restored historical buildings, numerous displays and an interpretive centre, offers visitors a link to the past through guided tours, all just a short drive away.
Come walk through the fully restored 1894 Convent where some of Alberta's first European residents - the nuns of the Mission - spent their days. There you will see numerous displays featuring antiques once used by the nuns, priests and children residing at the Mission site.
We are designated as a National Historic Site by Parks Canada, and as a Historic Resource by the Alberta government.
