It seems possible that the boundaries you want may be found on the WMS 
service at http://www.geobase.ca/geobase/en/index.html, but a WFS service 
would have been more use. There may be other sources - could anyone with 
insight into boundary data for counties in Alberta, presumably as vector 
polygons, please help?

I'm not sure what is meant by a binary map here - digital?
