Legacy Centre's origins came about to commemorate Slave Lake, where a wildfire in 2011 devastated the town and destroyed the original centre that was completed only one year earlier.

Through community workshops, a design was developed that included elements to address needs that were not currently met by any other town facility.Legacy Centre was designed with a high degree of sustainability utilizing a visually stunning combination of steel and wood elements.

The primary structure consists of exposed heavy timber construction of glulam beams and GLT (Westdek) floor slabs.

The 32,200 sq. ft. floor area includes a 500-seat performing arts theatre consisting of both retractable and flat-floor seats with banquet facilities for up to 300.

The centre also includes a FireSmart interpretive area, a First Nation cultural area, and a 200-child daycare.The second floor is dedicated to the Slave Lake Elks' offices, daycare offices and staff room, and offices for Red Cross.

In the event of an emergency, Legacy Centre will serve as an evacuation centre for the region.
