The Hudson's Bay Company (HBC) established the Fort Smith post in 1874. Fort Smith was the administrative centre of the Mackenzie District until Yellowknife became the Territorial capital in 1967. On April 4, 1963, the Advisory Committee of the Local Improvement District of Fort Smith organized a vote that granted village status to Fort Smith as of January 1964. Town status was obtained as of October 1, 1966, and the Fort Smith Village Council became the Council of the Corporation of the Town of Fort Smith.
