WCAREB covers a large region, from the Rockies, East in the Central Alberta, including Hinton, Edson, Jasper, Grande Cache, Whitecourt, Swan Hills, Fox Creek, Mayerthorpe, Barrhead, Slave Lake, Athabasca, Banff and Canmore. West Central Alberta is rich in resources and has vibrant forestry, mining, oil and gas, and tourism industries. As of 2008, WCAREB represented 149 members in the area.

According to the West Central Alberta Real Estate Board, their mission is to provide members with “quality structure and services to realize their highest potential, maximize their Professional Standards, and provide outstanding services.”

WCAREB was founded in 1978 as the Hinton-Edson Real Estate Board, representing 49 members in Hinton and Edson. Its first executive directors were Thelma Steele, president; Evelyn Holden, vice president; and Emery Laboucane, secretary treasurer.
