Lloydminster area was first settled in 1903 with the arrival of the Barr Colonists. The first part of the city’s name “Lloyd,” is after Reverend Lloyd and the last part is “minster,” meaning mother church. The hamlet of Lloydminster was located off of the fourth Meridian in the Northwest Territories. When Alberta and Saskatchewan were created in 1905, the fourth Meridian selected as the inter-provincial boundary was split in two.
The Alberta portion of the divided community was incorporated as a village and the Saskatchewan portion was incorporated as a town. As a result, there was a duplicated in all municipal functions and governmental services. Soon after, common sense prevailed and the two communities were rejoined into a single minicipality - being the town of Lloydminster. In 1958, the town received its charter as the City of Lloydminster and became the tenth city in both provinces.
