The community first appeared on city maps in the late 1960s, with development commencing in the early 1970s. Most street names in the community are those of prominent politicians in Canadian history, primarily prime ministers, though others including governors-general have also been recognized. Full build-out of the neighbourhood did not occur until the mid-2000s with the construction of one final street, Blakeney Crescent, honoring former Saskatchewan premier Allan Blakeney. In 2012, a small extension to the community was indicated as part of the area concept plan for the neighboring new area of Kensington, involving a short extension of Steeves Avenue to connect with a realigned 33rd Street. This will presumably facilitate the construction of a small number of additional dwellings.
The suburb is fashioned around Parc Canada, a 40.5-acre (164,000 m2) park area comprising Bishop Roberecki School and Confederation Park School. The northern boundary is 33rd Street West and the eastern is Confederation Drive. To the west of Confederation Park is a new neighbourhood under development.
In 2006, the neighbourhood consisted of 6,324 residents with an average family income of $50,210. At this time, the average household was valued at $143,142, and 72.7% of the population owned their own home. The family size was 2.9. According to MLS data, the average sale price of a home as of 2013 was $261,031.
