The Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo sometimes (RMWB) is a specialized municipality located in northeastern Alberta. It is home to vast oil sand deposits, also known as the Athabasca Oil Sands, helping to make the region one of the fastest growing industrial areas in Canada. It is in this area that Industrial Scaffold provides scaffolding and environmental containment to Fort McMurray, Fort McKay, and Lac La Biche.
Fort McMurray is 435 kilometres (270 mi) northeast of Edmonton on Highway 63, about 60 kilometres (37 mi) west of the Saskatchewan border, nestled in the boreal forest at the confluence of the Athabasca River and the Clearwater River. Fort McMurray is the largest community in the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo. Fort McMurray is considered the heart of one of Alberta’s (and Canada’s) hubs of oil production, located near the Athabasca Oil Sands. Besides the oil sands, the economy also relies on natural gas and oil pipelines, forestry and tourism. Industrial Scaffold provides scaffolding and environmental containment to several companies in the oil and gas industry in the Wood Buffalo region.
The region is home to a number of progressive and established resource industries such as agriculture, forestry, and oil and gas. This vibrancy has enabled sustained economic diversification. With an office and laydown 20km north of Grande Prairie, we are able to service the pulp and paper and oil and gas industries in this area up to and including Rainbow Lake.
Grande Prairie is 460 km (290 mi) northwest of Edmonton, and is the biggest city between Edmonton and Fairbanks, Alaska.

Industrial Scaffold Services L.P. are now a local scaffolding and environmental containment company with an office and laydown yard in Sexsmith, 20 kilometers north of Grande Prairie. This office now services Northwestern Alberta.
The Town of Rainbow Lake was named for its proximity to Rainbow Lake. The lake was called Rainbow by the Cree and Slavery who inhabited the area for many years, because of its shape. A trapper by the name of Rainbow Fournier roamed the area in the late 19th century and some believe it may have been named after him. The oil and gas utilize the services of Industrial Scaffold Services in this area.
