Established in 1853 – making it one of the oldest communities in Alberta – the Lac La Biche Mission is a beautiful 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 an officially designated Provincial Historic Resource and a Parks Canada National Historic Site.
