Christopher King, Ec.D.

A dedicated Economic Development Professional, I am passionate about Community Economic Development. My objective is to use the strengths derived from my diverse background to help improve quality of life for my community through the work I do with businesses from new investment, expansion and growth.

As Economic Development officer for the County of Grande Prairie, I can be your first point of contact for exploring opportunity in the region.  I am dedicated to promoting development and the growth of businesses within the County of Grande Prairie, focusing on Investment Attraction, Business Retention and Expansion, and Tourism. Currently the County is looking to expand our residential development into medium and high density developments as well as commercial development. We are looking for projects that combine both high density condos and commercial development. There is the possibility of a new mall development as well.
