About Our Ward

Ward Sipiwiyniwak, pronounced see-pee-WEEN’-oh-wok, is a combination of some neighbourhoods in what was previously Wards 5 & 1.

 

According to Edmonton's Indigenous Ward Naming Knowledge Committee, "Enoch Cree Nation members were known as the River Cree, or sipiwiyiniwak, to other tribes. In the 1800s, the First Nation covered about 114 square kilometres. In 1884, Chief Enoch Lapotac signed an adhesion to Treaty 6, but involuntary land surrenders caused the loss of more than half of Enoch land. The First Nation, bordering the west side of Edmonton, continues to fight for land rights today."

By 2030, our ward is projected to grow to a population of 102,000. That's more than the current population of Red Deer, AB!

There are 33 neighbourhoods in the ward! These neighbourhoods are a mix of new developments, and mature neighbourhoods - some were even built in the 60s!
