Histoire administrative

The Board of Commissioners is the highest administrative body in the Corporation of the City of Calgary. Since its establishment by Council appointment in 1905 and through its various manifestations, its role has been and continues to be ensuring the effective administration of The City. Before the Board of Commissioners was created, City Council had exclusive jurisdiction on all matters pertaining to The City, both legislative and administrative, generally carried out through committees reporting to Council. It soon became obvious that with expanding civic departments, a structure for coordination and control was necessary. While the first Board and its interim successor were both created by-law, an amendment to the Calgary Charter of 1908 divided certain legislative and executive duties of Council, giving most of the latter to the Commissioners. The first Board of Commissioners was appointed by Council in 1905, to assume office in January 1906. After a brief trial period, this Board was found to be unsatisfactory and disbanded. In 1907, Council petitioned the Provincial Legislature for the power to elect a Board of Commissioners. While awaiting the Legislature's decision on their petition, Council appointed an interim Commission for 1908. A special plebiscite was held in 1907 to select two candidates for appointment to the new Board.

Historique de la conservation

Portée et contenu

The fonds consists of records created by the Board of Commissioners. The records can all, with the exception of the Convention Centre files, be described as correspondence or subject files. From their establishment until the present, the Board of Commissioners have used simple file classification systems to arrange their files. These systems changed over time and the series, determined by the archivist, reflect changes to the classification system rather than changes in the types or nature of the records created. The first series consists of records created from 1909-1931 (predominant 1909-1921), the second from 1923-1945 (predominant 1923-1929), the third from 1945-1949, the fourth from 1950- 1959, the fifth from 1960-1970, and the sixth from 1971-1980. A separate series has been created for the records relating to the Calgary Convention Centre.
