This is a timeline of the history of Edmonton, Canada.

pre-settlement[edit]

  • Indigenous peoples roamed Alberta for thousands of years, or even tens of thousands of years. The rim of the river valley and its ravines and hilltops in Edmonton are known to have been well-used as campgrounds and look-out points during this time. Rabbit Hill, today's Mary Lobay Park, Mount Pleasant Cemetery and Huntington Heights (near Whitemud Freeway west of Calgary Trail) are known to be sites of human activity for millennia.

18th century[edit]

19th century[edit]

  • 1810 Fort Edmonton moved to Rossdale, never again to move out of today's Edmonton.
  • 1830 Fort Edmonton moved up hill, to near today's legislative Building.


20th century[edit]

Canadian Northern Railway (CNoR) arrived in Edmonton in 1905.
