District of Athabasca
The District of Athabasca was a regional administrative district of Canada's Northwest Territories. It was formed in 1882, was later enlarged, and then abolished with the creation of the provinces of Saskatchewan and Alberta in 1905.
Its northern boundary was the current southern boundary of the Northwest Territories and the western part met the boundary of British Columbia. In 1882 it included most of the northern portion of the modern-day Province of Alberta.
In 1895 it was expanded east to include the northern portion of the modern-day Province of Saskatchewan and part of eastern modern-day Manitoba and the southern boundary was moved northward.
