Edmonton (electoral district)
Edmonton was a federal electoral district represented in the House of Commons of Canada. It was located initially in the Northwest Territories, and following its creation in 1905, the province of Alberta (although between 1905 and 1907 Edmonton also included parts of Saskatchewan). This riding was created in 1903, and was abolished in 1914 when it was redistributed into Edmonton East, Edmonton West and Strathcona ridings.
Members of Parliament
The only person ever to represent this riding was Edmonton Liberal newspaper publisher Frank Oliver who was Minister of the Interior at a time when Alberta was being settled by European immigrants, and when Alberta joined Confederation as a province in 1905.
