            Edmonton Chartered Accountants Wives Club was a social group for the wives of Chartered Accountants (CAs) living in Edmonton. The Club existed from 1977 to 2004, and was affiliated with the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Alberta. It was modeled after similar groups that were established in other provinces at the time (ie. The Vancouver C.A. Wives, Chartered Accountant Wives Club of British Columbia, and The Chartered Accountants Wives Club of Manitoba). They aimed to host a variety of social events for their members to promote good fellowship and friendship among the wives of chartered accountants.

            The Club was governed by an elected executive committee comprised of a President, Vice-President, Secretary, Treasurer, and Membership Convener. Each executive member would serve a term of one year and not more than two years in a specific elective office. They hosted an annual general meeting and additional meetings at the discretion of the executive committee. The Club also had a number of interest groups, which could be formed by any group member with the approval of the executive committee. Popular interest groups included those related to cooking, bridge, crafts, swim-exercise, and cross-country skiing.

            The group maintained a steady number of members until the 1990s, when more women joined the workforce as chartered accountants. By 2002, 52% of CA graduates were women, and with fewer CAs getting married before the age of 30, there was a significant decrease in membership. In response to these developments, the Edmonton C.A. Wives chose to dissolve the Club in 2004.
