Edmonton was a territorial electoral district for the Legislative Assembly of Northwest Territories, Canada.

The riding was created by royal proclamation in 1883 and abolished in 1905. In 1888 the riding returned the top two candidates after it was merged with the St. Albert electoral district. The district was reverted to a single member constituency and split to recreate St. Albert in 1891 and stayed that way until it was dissolved in 1905.
