    Administrative history

    Kanados Lietuvių Bendruomenės (KLB) Edmonton apylinkė (Lithuanian Canadian Community Edmonton chapter) was established as the regional chapter of the Lithuanian Canadian Community (LCC) for Lithuanians living in the Edmonton, Alberta area. On 1949-12-11 at a general meeting of Lithuanians living in and around Edmonton, it was decided to form the Lietuvių Tautinis Komitetas (Lithuanian National Committee) and an executive committee was elected. This committee called another general meeting on 1950-5-28 at which it was decided to form a KLB Apylinkės Laikinasis Organizacinis Komitetas or ALOK (LCC Provisional Chapter Organizing Committee) out of the previously formed Lietuvių Tautinis Komitetas. At a general meeting held on 1952-10-19, the Edmonton LCC chapter officially started its activities with the election of the chapter’s first executive. The Edmonton LCC chapter was still active in 2010.
