This holiday season, all of our Supporters are entered to win an $800 Shopping Spree Giveaway!

The Northern Rockies Regional Municipality has issued an evacuation alert for an area of approximately 960 square kilometres, just 7 kilometres north of the July and June Lakes, and south to 7 kilometres past the Petitor River. There are two camps affected, including the CNRL Gas Plant at Petitor River and Penn West facilities.

Although there is no immediate concern, the decision was made because of the potential danger to life and health. Those in the affected area are asked to gather essential items like medications, eyeglasses and valuable papers like insurance, as well as keepsake items like photos, so they are ready should an evacuation be necessary.

We will continue to update as we learn more about the situation.
