Leduc was established as a settlement by Robert Telford, who settled in the area in 1899 near a lake that carries his name today (Telford Lake). Robert Telford went on to become the first postmaster, first general merchant and first justice of the peace in the settlement that was informally known as Telford. In 1890, a man by the name of Mr. McKinely set up the first telegraph office in the area and interestingly decided to name it after the first person to walk in through the door. This happened to be Father Hippolyte Leduc, a local priest who had served in the area since 1867. Later, in 1899, Lieutenant Governor Dewdney of the Northwest Territories named the settlement in honour of Father Leduc. Leduc was incorporated as a village in 1899, as a town in 1906 and as a city in 1983. By the time Leduc became a city, it had a population of 12,000. Today, the city's population stands at 33,000.
