Name of creator
The Village of West Edmonton was incorporated in July 1910. The village was located just to the northwest of Edmonton, and was bounded 127th Street on the west, roughly 113 Street on the east and the Grand Trunk Railway line on the south. The village was populated primarily by workers on the nearby railway lines. In 1917, the residents of the Village of West Edmonton voted to amalgamate with the City of Edmonton. The area came to be known as the Calder neighbourhood of Edmonton.
These records were likely absorbed by the City of Edmonton when the Village of West Edmonton was amalgamated in 1917.
Scope and content
The fonds consists of materials created by the Village of West Edmonton.
The fonds includes the following series:
- Series 1: Minutes

Immediate source of acquisition
These records were transferred to the City of Edmonton Archives in 1982 and 1992. The records from 1982 came from the Office of the City Clerk. At the time of the 1992 transfer the accession paperwork simply recorded that the material was from the Village of North Edmonton, but the acquisition source was not included.
The material was arranged by the archivist by function.
