The Calgary Yacht Club was founded in Calgary, Alberta and incorporated as a society in 1934. A.B. Himmelman was the first commodore. The objects of the club are to encourage proficiency in the handling of all types of boats, and to arrange competitions. Its first clubhouse was built on the northeast end of Chestermere Lake, but was moved to the east shore of the lake in 1951. In 1976 a new two-storey clubhouse was built.
