In January of 1962, Edmonton's Finance Committee recommended to City Council that a Centennial Committee be established to look into restoring Fort Edmonton for the Centennial. From this request grew the Edmonton Civic Centennial Council, an arms-length organization dedicated to coordinating Centennial activities in Edmonton.
The Civic Centennial Council, later called the Civic Centennial Committee, was responsible for planning Centennial festivities on behalf of the City. They provided information, promoted and coordinated activities, and made recommendations to the City on Centennial-related issues.
The Committee was managed by an executive directorate of representatives from civic government, business and industry, citizen organizations, and voluntary community groups. They reported to the City Commissioners.
