3. Relationship to other units

The Ellerslie Member represents the lower part of the Mannville Group in southern and central Alberta. It is conformably overlain by the Ostracod Beds of the Manville Group and rests unconformably on Paleozoic strata such as the Banff Formation or Pekisko Formation, often separated by a Detrital Zone.

It is correlated to the McMurray Formation in the Athabasca Oil Sands of north-eastern Alberta and the Dina Member in east-central Alberta and west-central Saskatchewan.
