St. Joachim's Church is another church in Edmonton which distinguishes itself by being the oldest Roman Catholic parish in this city.

In 1877 this parish changed its location and was rebuilt on Jasper Avenue. In 1886, Hudson's Bay Company finished construction of the 3rd church, named St. Joachim. Much later, in 1978, this parish was designated as a provincial historic landmark.
