    The Fort Saskatchewan & District Chamber of Commerce, as it is known today, or the original Fort Saskatchewan Board of Trade dates back to 1904. The bustling village of Fort Saskatchewan, population of about 600, needed direction in their business community. Thus on the evening of January 25, 1904, 17 concerned businessmen got together to form what was to be known as the Fort Saskatchewan Board of Trade.In these early years the Board of Trade played a very important part in the development of the Fort and had a decided influence on the Village and Town Council and concerned itself with all phases of the community. The present Chamber of Commerce started in the early 1950's and today is a very vibrant and intricate part of the community and district. In 1980 office space was leased at 9911 103 street for the Chamber of Commerce office, and a part-time secretary was employed. Today the office is located in the old Fire Hall, since been the home to the Boys and Girls Club, Morgans Printing and Switzer Financial. Now occupied by the Chamber of Commerce and various other businesses at 9923 103 street.
