Rural Addressing

This section provides information about the Municipal Rural (or Civic) Addressing Program.  There is also digital data for those users who have been given a map CD.

The Rural Addressing system adopted by Big Lakes County has been around for some time, but, has only recently begun being implemented in Alberta.  For more information about how the Rural Address number is derived, and some brief information about how the system came to be, view or download this pamphlet:

MDBL Addressing History/Information Pamphlet

If you would like a quick-reference sheet that may help to remember the system, have a look at this insert:
Understanding RA Numbers Insert

As many of the Rural Address signs have gone into the ground, there is some information required regarding the maintenance of these Rural Address signs.
