On 19 January 1948, it was established as Ukrainian Catholic Apostolic Exarchate of Western Canada (an Eastern Catholic missionary pre-diocesan jurisdiction, akin to a Latin Apostlic Prefecture), on territory split off from the then Ukrainian Catholic Apostolic Exarchate of Canada.
On 10 March 1951, it was renamed as Ukrainian Catholic Apostolic Exarchate of Edmonton, after its see.
On 3 November 1956, promoted as Ukrainian Catholic Eparchy (Eastern Catholic diocese) of Edmonton. It thus lost its exempt status, becoming a suffragan in the ecclesiastical province of the Metropolitan Ukrainian Catholic Archeparchy of Winnipeg.
On 27 June 1974, it lost territory to establish the Ukrainian Catholic Eparchy of New Westminster.
As of 2007, the diocese contains 87 parishes, 39 active diocesan and religious priests and 28,750 Catholics. It also has 30 women religious, 24 religious brothers and 5 permanent deacons.
