Message from the Reeve

Greetings

On behalf of the County of Grande Prairie No. 1, it is with great pleasure that I welcome you to our website.

The County of Grande Prairie is located in the beautiful Peace Region of Alberta, Canada approximately 460 kilometres northwest of Edmonton and directly adjacent to the British Columbia border. The County is comprised of three towns; one village; five hamlets; one First Nations Reserve, and several other country residential communities.

The County of Grande Prairie's vision is to focus on residents' quality of life and diversity of opportunity while enabling success through cooperation and progressive leadership. I am honoured that I can be one of the County's leaders that the community has placed trust in to help accomplish this vision.

We have a lot to be thankful for. Agriculture, Oil & Gas, Forestry, and Tourism are the industries and businesses that make up the core of our economy and play a large role in building, shaping and maintaining our strong, prosperous economy. Our Council and Administration are committed to maintaining clear air, clean water, our natural environment, our open spaces and our agricultural heritage. We also must give credit to our neighbouring municipalities that we have close cooperative and collaborative relations with.

Most importantly, we believe that the County's success relies on the residents that make up our communities. We will continue to balance our duty to be good stewards of all these assets, and act in the best interests of the community as a whole.

County Council and Administration are dedicated to fostering two-way communications and mutually beneficial relationships with the residents of our communities and other communities; visitors of our community; other orders of governments; public, non-profit and private organizations; and, people who want to learn about us.

We hope our website achieves our goal to openly communicate with and inform you about the many programs and initiatives we are undertaking. If you have any comments or questions about the content found here please call us at 780-532-9722 or email us at communications@countygp.ab.ca.

Thank-you for your interest!
