Unitarian Church of Edmonton

The Unitarian church was first founded in Edmonton in 1912, based near the brand-new University of Alberta. In the late 1930’s it folded but was reborn in 1954 as the Unitarian Church of Edmonton. In 1982 a second Unitarian church was founded in Edmonton, with the help of UCE, called Westwood Unitarian Congregation.
