The Edmonton Historical Board (EHB) is an advisory board for the City Council of Edmonton, providing information and recommendations relating to Edmonton's history generally and specifically in reference to the city's built heritage.

About the EHB

Formed as the Archives and Landmarks Committee in 1947 and renamed in 1966, the Edmonton Historical Board (EHB) advises City Council on matters relating to City of Edmonton historical issues and civic heritage policies.

The EHB’s mandate is to encourage, promote and advocate for the preservation and safeguarding of historical properties, resources, communities and documentary heritage.

To support this mandate, the EHB has 3 committees and an annual award ceremony. In addition, in partnership with The City of Edmonton and the Edmonton Heritage Council, the Edmonton Historical Board has overseen the creation of and provided continued support to the City’s Historian Laureate position.
