Alberta Provincial Highway No. 36,[1] also named Veterans Memorial Highway,[2] is a north-south highway located in eastern Alberta, Canada. It extends from Highway 4 near the Village of Warner in the south to Highway 55 within the Hamlet of Lac La Biche in the north. Lac La Biche County is lobbying the Government of Alberta to renumber Highway 881 to Highway 36 from Lac La Biche north to Highway 63 south of Fort McMurray.[3]
