On behalf of the County of Grande Prairie Council and Administration, Reeve Leanne Beaupre expresses sincere condolences on the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on September 8, 2022. 

“Our thoughts are with the Royal Family, Canadians and all members of the Commonwealth as we come together in our shared grief upon the passing of Canada’s longest reigning sovereign,” says Reeve Beaupre. “During this period of great mourning, may we be comforted as we reflect on her extensive legacy of service to Canada and the world.”   

Her Majesty’s dedication and steadfast leadership during her 70 years on the throne has been an example to us all. May her unwavering commitment to public service continue to inspire others for generations to come.  

Flags have been lowered to half-mast at all County of Grande Prairie facilities for the mourning period of 10 days and portraits of the Queen will be draped in black. Flags will be at full mast for one day to mark the accession day of the King.  

A book of condolence and memorial service details will be available online at www.alberta.ca.
