Biography / Administrative history

Following the creation of the Department of Indian Affairs and Northern Development in 1966, agencies were joined to form larger administrative units called districts. The Athabaska and the Saddle Lake Agencies were amalgamated in 1967 to form the Saddle Lake/Athabaska District Office. The district office was created to assist in the administration of various bands in Northern Alberta. At that time, these bands included the following: Cree; Saddle Lake; Fort Chipewyan; Cold Lake; Frog Lake; Kehewin; Beaver Lake; Fort McKay; Fort McMurray; Heart Lake; and Janvier Bands. Regional Administrative Histories, 1958-1990, (Bands, Agencies, Districts). Unpublished draft in the possession of the RG10 archivist, prepared by Peter Kiefl et al.
