Name of creator
The Lutheran Women's Missionary League of the Alberta-British Columbia District was formed in 1954. The League was established as part of the International Lutheran Women's Missionary League of the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod. The purpose of the League was to support Lutheran Missionary activities around the world. The Alberta-British Columbia League was divided into numerous local zones around the two Provinces. The Alberta Zones were Parkland, Peace River, South Alberta, Evergreen, Concordia and Parkland.

In 1993, at the International Lutheran Women's Missionary League's Convention held in Edmonton, the Lutheran Women's Missionary League, Alberta-British Columbia District came under the jurisdiction of the newly formed Lutheran Women's Missionary League-Canada.
