Grande Prairie is a city in Northwestern Alberta within the southern portion of the area known as Peace River Country. It is located at the intersection of Highway 43 and Highway 40 approximately 456km Northwest of Edmonton. The city is surrounded by the County of Grande Prairie No. 1. Since becoming part of the Western Family, the Grande Prairie office has awarded over $5000 back to the community supporting organizations and annual bursaries to many well-deserving students.
A few of us in the office got the opportunity to attend the Annual World Professional Chuck wagon Races at the Grande Prairie Stampede in 2016. Being in that atmosphere and seeing all the people from all over our community come together to support each other had an amazing effect on our community spirit. We recently started a social committee to brainstorm new and creative ways to get out and get more involved in our community as we are driven to access more of the great benefits that the Western Communities Foundation has to offer. Our office is Alberta Strong and growing!
