Picard, Joseph Henri

  • EDM
  • Person

Joseph Henri Picard was born in 1857 in St. Jean de Math, Joliette Quebec. He moved to Alberta in 1884, choosing to settle in Edmonton in 1887 on the advice of Father Lacombe. Picard quickly adapted to life in Edmonton, and in 1889, Picard and his partner, fellow Quebecer Stanislas LaRue, opened a general store LaRue and Picard. They also began to sell real estate during the Edmonton land boom during the 1890s. Picard's early success allowed him to diversify his business interests; in 1907 Picard retired from LaRue and Picard and he turned his attention to real estate, coal, brewing, cement, and railways. In addition to his various business interests, Picard was also actively involved in municipal affairs, serving on city council intermittently between 1894 and 1916 and with the Edmonton Board of Trade. Picard was also the first president of the Edmonton Separate School Board as well as serving as trustee. Picard married Martine Voyer in 1903, and they had two sons Robert and Laurier. The Picard fortunes began to slide during the First World War, ultimately leading to considerable debts and financial ruin. Picard retired from business in 1924, and he died in May 1934.
