The Unitarian Church of Edmonton (UCE) has roots that go back to 1912.  The church has always been a voice of reason and compassion and social justice in Alberta’s capital city. Our congregation grew so big in the 1970s that a second congregation, Westwood Unitarian Congregation, was started up in 1982. The Unitarian Church of Edmonton remains the larger of the two congregations, and has been and remains a collection of remarkable people.

UCE is part of the Canadian Unitarian Council, which has 46 member congregations from Halifax to Vancouver Island. The oldest Canadian Unitarian congregation was founded in 1842.
