The Lac La Biche Region is your gateway to the incredible woods and waters of the Lakeland. The region is a year-round playground for those in search of authentic outdoor adventure, cultural connections and must-see events. We are the regional centre for business, health care, education, and government services. For the outdoor enthusiasts, we have over 150 beaches throughout our region. For the days you want to be inside, we have the Bold Centre, a 227,000 square foot recreation, entertainment and education facility.
