La Salle College Old Boys Association, Edmonton Chapter started in 1985 and was incorporated under the Provincial Act of Government of Alberta. The Edmonton Chapter is a non-profit organization comprising of approximately 50 members.

The LSCOBA President, Dr. Lawrence Chan (1962) my classmate, wrote me to gather as many La Salle old boys as we can to meet with Mr. & Mrs. Sales. I was then a new immigrant, coming to Edmonton in 1976. Luckily my brother Anthony Yip (1967) introduced me to Michael Kwong (1967) who was a popular person in Edmonton.
