Frequently Asked Questions

Where are you located?
2 hours from High Level. 178 kilometers the Mackenzie highway north then 63 kilometers left at the Zama turn off.

Are kids safe going to school with all of the animals around?
Yes we do not let the children leave the school with out checking to see if the buffalo etc. are wandering around.  Usually people will call us if they see any bears etc.  near town. The children are usually picked up at lunch and after school.

​What services are available in the community?
Because the town is primarily an oil town and because of our small population, Zama does not have a grocery store. We have a cardlock convenience store which also runs our mail, two open camps which serve as restaurants, a library, a gym, and an outdoor skating rink. Groceries are either bought in High Level or shipped out to Zama via Greyhound service.
