Having lived in Slave Lake for over 35 years, Danielle Larivee is committed to the well-being of Albertans and is passionate about ensuring quality public services for all residents.
Larivee has worked as a Registered Nurse in the Lesser Slave Lake region for over 17 years while volunteering as the treasurer for the local chapter of Mothers Against Drunk Driving. Larivee also chaired the Regional Wellness Advisory Committee in her region, was the president of Local 315 of the United Nurses of Alberta and volunteer for the Community Friendship Mat Program, a homelessness initiative in Slave Lake.
Initially, Larivee engaged in politics because she was concerned that Alberta's prosperity did not seem to be making it better for the average Albertan. Living in a region that depends on the oil and gas industry, her priority was to ensure that all Albertans received a fair return on the resources being extracted.
She has also actively encouraged the upgrading of Bitumen in the province instead of exporting huge volumes.
