Alberta Highway 36
(also named Veterans Memorial Highway) is a north-south highway located in eastern Alberta, extending from the town of
Lac La Biche in the north to the village of Warner in the south. It was given the name Veterans Memorial Highway in 2005 during the Province of Alberta's centennial, in honour of the province's military history, and for the contributions Alberta's veterans have made.
The northernmost leg of Highway 36 begins 20 kilometres (kms) south of Lac La Biche, where it meets with Highway 55 to complete the route further north to Fort McMurray and Alberta's Oil Sands region, via Highway 63.
Highway 36 continues to stretch south through eastern Alberta, all the way down to Warner, where it meets with Highway 4 travelling southeast out of Lethbridge. From Warner, it is approximately 30 kms to Coutts at the US border.
The total length of Highway 36 is 626 kms (375 miles).
