Wabasca Postal Code and Address Information

Wabasca’s main Postal Code is T0G 2K0 and most mail is delivered to postal boxes located at the main post office. All home civic addresses in the Hamlet of Wabasca have a distinct lot/house number so no number is repeated even if on a different street/road. All the roads within the Hamlet have been named and are most times related to the other roads in the area and may even be Cree in nature.

At one time Wabasca had two post offices and was considered two communities; Wabasca along the North Wabasca Lake and Desmarais along the South Wabasca Lake. Now the whole community is considered Wabasca but with two main areas areas locals refer to. Wabasca is everything north west of the Wabasca Airport and everything south east is considered Desmarais.

The Bigstone Cree Nation has four large reserves bordering the Hamlet of Wabasca and use a similar civic addressing system as the Hamlet of Wabasca. The locals consider the reserves part of the community as a whole and the Hamlet of Wabasca and Bigstone Cree Nation have many shared services (water, etc.) although there are also many duplicated services (school, etc.).
