Born and raised in Edmonton, Deron Bilous grew up in a proudly Ukrainian home where he learned to appreciate Alberta’s diversity.
Deron has served two terms as the MLA for Edmonton-Beverly-Clareview, and is running again to continue to fight for a sustainable future for all Albertans.
A dedicated champion for Alberta workers and business, Deron was sworn in as Minister of Economic Development and Trade in 2015. Deron has used this role to help drive international investment in the province and to encourage projects that will help grow and diversify Alberta’s economy.
After graduating from the University of Alberta with a Bachelor of Education degree, he taught and mentored students at Edmonton’s Inner City High School. He quickly learned to see potential where others might only see hardship, an outlook that still serves him well. Before becoming a teacher, Deron worked in Quebec, Tunisia and China on a number of projects with Canada World Youth, a volunteer youth program that focuses on international development between 1995 and 2005.
Deron lives in the historic neighbourhood of Beverly in Edmonton.
