Hwy 43 Hwy 45

Alberta Provincial Highway No. 44[1] is a highway in northern Alberta, Canada. It extends from Hondo to Highway 16 (Yellowhead Highway) east of the City of Spruce Grove.

It is the primary route between the Edmonton area and the Lesser Slave Lake region.

The stretch between Highway 16 and Westlock was formerly secondary highway 794, but due to a large increase in traffic it was upgraded to Highway 44 in the late 1990s.[2]
