Making a difference each day for our region.
To make a difference each day for our region through a passionate team committed to quality of life, using innovative leadership to inspire exceptional memories and build fun. Based on the goals of sustainability, flexibility, innovation, engagement, strong stakeholder relationships and excellence delivered through a team approach, the Regional Recreation Corporation of Wood Buffalo (RRC) strives to take the lead in premier recreation, sport, and events experiences in the Wood Buffalo region. The RRC is designed to stand apart, with a clean, bold, and simple design created to quickly capture brand awareness and recognition.
The Regional Recreation Corporation of Wood Buffalo (RRC) was created by the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo (RMWB) Council in October, 2012 to design, build, steward and operate several state-of-the-art community recreation, sport and event facilities and venues. The RRC was officially incorporated under the Canada Notfor-profit Corporations Act on June 10, 2013.
Working in collaboration with the RMWB and with the communities it serves, the RRC builds upon the success of MacDonald Island Park, Canada’s largest community recreation and events experience, in order to lead and foster an approach of excellence in service delivery and facilities throughout the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo, as well as supporting and enhancing initiatives already in place.
Aligned with the RMWB Municipal Development Plan, new initiatives are being developed utilizing the expertise of the entire region. As a result, the RRC will expand and develop services offered in cooperation with various sport, recreation and community associations to similar quality standards while adapting to suit the needs of each community. The facilities, designed to meet the needs of a growing population, encompass both those within the urban area of Fort McMurray as well as facilities in Anzac, Conklin, and Fort Chipewyan.
Alongside MacDonald Island, which includes the Suncor Community Leisure Centre and Miskanaw Golf Club, and Shell Place, currently under construction at MacDonald Island, these future facilities will form the foundation for a new era in community recreation, sport and events in the Wood Buffalo region.
