Wildfire Resources for Updates
During wildfire season, it is important to remain vigilant and kept apprised as new information comes in.
While CRDAC aims to share any news that comes to light, please know that the best source of information is through either the Government of Alberta or the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo.
Here are some important guides, sites, and key information to stay informed:
|Government of Alberta – Wildfire Status||Visit Website|
Download AB Wildfire Status Application for Android
Download AB Wildfire Status Application for iOS
|Alberta Emergency Alert (AEA)||Download AEA for Android|
Download AEA for iOS
|Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo |
Download Conklin Emergency Management Plan
Download Know Your Plan
Download Emergency Guide
|Asbestos.com||Asbestos and Natural Disaster Guide|
Please remain vigilant in staying current on any regional wildfire situation by downloading the Alberta Emergency Alert (AEA) on your phone. This is where you can learn if there are any evacuation alerts or orders.
Know the difference…
An ALERT means to be ready.
An ORDER means to get out.
Please remember to reach out to your family members, friends, and neighbours, who may have difficulty in navigating websites and applications. We will continue to share any updates that RMWB provides to us.

Opposition to Proposed Landfill
On November 22, 2019, the CRDAC on behalf of the community of Conklin alongside its legal counsel successfully opposed Secure Energy Services’ (“Secure”) appeal of the decision of the development authority, the Subdivision and Development Appeals Board (“SDAB”), to develop a Class II landfill within 500 metres of the Hamlet’s boundary and within two kilometres of existing residences in Conklin.
The community of Conklin expressed many concerns of the site location namely the alarming distance to the community and the current use of site.
See below for a full review of the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo SDAB decision.
COVID-19 Community Response
The CRDAC is in regular communication with all levels of government and is doing its best to provide up-to-date and relevant information to keep our community safe. Please see our news feed or visit our Facebook for the latest updates.
Christina Lake Water Monitoring
The Christina Lake, a scenic and recreational lake, has been a part of Conklin and its history for many generations. As part of CRDAC’s mandate, it is our objective to ensure that we aim to protect the water, traditional ecological knowledge, and species ranging from walleye to yellow perch for many more generations to come.
Through this program, the CRDAC hopes to develop a water quality program including the installation of 16 shallow groundwater wells to help measure levels, identify any present contaminants, and collection of data that will ultimately help contribute to a fish health study. Residents are needed to help identify key locations around and/or on the lake as well as key items that need to be measured.
