Commemorative Edition Media Kit 2016


THE BEAST. Those two words sum up the staggering, incomprensible wildfire that engulfed our region, sending every resident fleeing for safety...wherever it could be found. It’s the fire that resulted in ashes... ashes that we, the community of Fort McMurray, will rise from.

The 2016 Wildfire Commemorative Edition will tell the story of this event that changed each and every one of our lives. It will capture the timelines, stories, and images, and pay tribute to those who have given so much of themselves just so that we can return to our home, Fort McMurray, once again.

This issue of Your McMurray Magazine will be a keepsake; one to look at over the years, reminding ourselves of all that happened, and the way a community, a province, and a country pulled together to take care of each other.
