About the EHB

To support this mandate, the EHB has three 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.
