Alberta Minister of Economic Development and Trade
Born and raised in Edmonton, Deron Bilous knows the incredible contribution Alberta workers have made to our province and our country. Growing-up in a proudly Ukrainian home he also appreciates the strength and beauty of our province’s diversity.
Between 1995 and 2005, Mr. Bilous worked in Quebec, Tunisia and China on a number of projects with Canada World Youth, a volunteer youth program focusing on international development.
After graduating from the University of Alberta with an education degree in 2001, he taught and mentored students at Edmonton’s Inner City High School, where he learned to see potential where others might see hardship. He also began working in neighbourhood and community development.
The voters of Edmonton-Beverly-Clareview first elected him as their Member of the Legislative Assembly on April 23, 2012, and again on May 5, 2015.
A dedicated champion for Alberta workers and Alberta business, Deron Bilous was sworn in as Minister of Economic Development and Trade on October 22, 2015. Prior to this, he served as Minister of Municipal Affairs and as Minister of Service Alberta.
We are thrilled to welcome Honourable Deron Bilous to #CannabisCon’s Cannabis Canada Forums Business Opportunity Day on Friday, April 13th at the Edmonton Shaw Conference Centre to give the opening remarks during the Chamber of Commerce Luncheon and the panel discussion Economic Development and Business Opportunities: Regional Economic Development and business opportunities for Alberta (followed by Q & A with audience).
