It is located in the Municipal District of Mackenzie, at the intersection of Mackenzie Highway (Highway 35) and Highway 58. The area surrounding High Level is known for its oil reserves and forests.

The young vibrant community was born as a crossroads on the new Mackenzie Highway to the north in 1942. Earlier, trails went from Hay Lakes to Meander River and Ft. Vermilion and points in between used by Dene, Beaver and Cree peoples and fur traders. Today, High Level's rich resources of forestry, oil and gas and cleared agricultural land bring prosperity to the town and region.
