Impact across the Region

Mayor Choy values collaboration and the sharing of resources to yield maximum benefits for businesses and residents. As a member of Edmonton Global, and the Collaborative Economic Development initiative, he has played a key role in bringing partners to the table to support large infrastructure projects and investments in the local economy.

He is also keenly engaged in preparing the Region to address the increasing frequency of climate events. As a member of the Tri-Region (with Spruce Grove and Parkland County), the Capital Water Services Commission, and the Northern Alberta Mayors and Reeves Caucus, he reminds us that many of these issues cannot be addressed by a single municipality.
