Dates of existence



The Edmonton Board of Trade, a community-based volunteer organization, was established in February 1889 to promote practical growth opportunities to support and enhance the prosperity of Edmonton’s business community with the goal of attracting settlers to the district. At the time of the Chamber's formation, Edmonton's economy was more rooted in agriculture than energy.

It was renamed the Edmonton Chamber of Commerce in 1928, retaining its mandate of contributing to the growth and development of Edmonton and its business community. In 2014, the Edmonton Chamber celebrated its 125th year of serving businesses in Edmonton.
