North Edmonton - MLAs (Provincial)

It has been a very busy summer for me here in Edmonton-Decore.  I have been out as much as possible in the riding meeting with and speaking to constituents and business owners about issues that matter to them.  I have had many great conversations, and I truly look forward to bringing back your concerns to the Legislature when the fall sitting commences.

This summer has seen the grand opening of numerous retailers in the riding.  Earlier this summer, I attended the grand opening of Lowe’s in Nameo Centre.  In August, I am looking forward to the grand opening of Simons in Londonderry Mall and Marshalls in Northgate Centre.  Londonderry Mall will also have numerous new retailers opening in August that are Alberta-based retailers.  I look forward to meeting with all the new business owners and I am very proud to have each and every one of you in my constituency.

At this time, I would like to invite all of you to participate in the 2nd Annual “A Taste of Decore”.  The event will take place on April 28, 2018 from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the Northgate Lions Seniors Recreation Centre, located at 7524-139 Ave NW.

We would invite your organization/business to participate in one of two ways:

1)      We are looking for organizations/groups to perform at the event.  If your organization has a group that would like to perform, please let us know.

2)      We will have tables provided free of charge where you can showcase your organization/business.

Last year we had well over 500 people attend the event and this year we have added more space for more participants.  If you would like to register for the event, or require further information, please contact my Constituency Manager Maria-Elizabeth Vicente at

Finally, I would like to extend an invitation for you to attend the Edmonton-Decore Constituency Office Open House on Sunday September 10th from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.  The Constituency Office is located in Dickinsfield Mall at #5, 9228-144 Ave NW.  Come and spend an afternoon with my staff and I who would be happy to answer questions you may have pertaining to your business/organization.  When you come to the Open House, please bring a new, unwrapped toy and/or book to the open house.  All toys collected will be donated to organizations in the riding at Christmas time.
