Biographical history

The County of Athabasca No. 12 was created in January 1959 combining the Municipal District of Athabasca No. 103 and the Athabasca School Division No. 42. Prior to the county's creation, the areas were served by municipal offices in the various towns and villages. The County of Athabasca No. 12 is situated between Townships 62 and 69, Range 17 to 25, West of the 4th Meridian. The county office is located in the Town of Athabasca and the county services an area of approximately 6237 square kilometres to the south and northeast of the Town of Athabasca. The County features an abundance of lakes and rivers, along with many scenic hiking and cross-country ski trails. There are also ten hamlets within the County, including Atmore, Breynat, Caslan, Colinton, Ellscott, Donatville, Meanook, Perryvale, Rochester and Wandering River. Maintaining the infrastructure in these hamlets and throughout the municipality includes ensuring the safe operation of a variety of facilities, water and sewer systems and 2425 kilometres of roads.
