Biography / Administrative history
In February 1911, an agent was first appointed to administer the bands located in the northeastern portion of Treaty 8. This agency was known as the Fort Smith Agency, the name derived from the location of the agency headquarters. Agency headquarters were moved to Fort McMurray in 1924, and the agency name changed accordingly. In 1932, agency headquarters was re-located to Fort Chipewyan and tha agency came to be known as the Athabaska Agency. In 1949, responsibility for th Janvier and Fort McMurray bands was transferred to the Edmonton Agency, but responsibility for these bands was later returned to the Saddle Lake / Athabaska District office. In 1980, responsibility for the Cree and Chipewyan bands at Fort Chipewyan, and the Fort McMurray and Janvier Bands was separated from the Saddle Lake/Athabaska District to constitute the Fort McMurray District. In 1983 the reorganization of the Alberta Region resulted in the establishment of the Fort McMurray District Field Office. This office was then designated as a service centre effective 1 April 1987.
