Calder, Alberta was an Alberta hamlet that became part of the City of Edmonton in 1917. Also known as the Village of West Edmonton, the community was located just north of the Hudson's Bay Company reserve lands. The Hudson's Bay Company "hoping to benefit from rising real estate prices in pre World War I Edmonton, delayed the sale and development of about 1,600 acres (6 km2) of its reserve lands." The community owed its existence to the railway. The Grand Trunk Pacific Railway located its roundhouse, repair shops and shunting yard near the site of the community. The first permanent buildings in Calder were built in 1909.
There are two schools in the neighbourhood. Calder Elementary School is operated by the Edmonton Public School System and the St. Edmund Catholic Elementary Junior High School is operated by the Edmonton Catholic School System.
