Victor Czop

Victor Czop - Councillor 

Victor was born and raised here in Alberta, with his early years in small towns and on the farm. After living in a few areas throughout the province, Victor settled in High River where he lived for sixteen years.

 Even from the first year in High River, with the game of golf as his passion, his experiences at the Nanton Golf Course, dealing with the people he met here and the town itself, he made the right decision to move to Nanton and establish his final set of roots. It was indeed, the right choice in life to get back to an environment that was most comfortable and enjoyable.

 Victor’s living and work experiences included various industries. Having undertaken leadership roles and attaining management skills, Victor felt his experiences and knowledge would be useful in representing this community as a member of a strong team of individuals.

 Victor believes that as a person ages from youth to senior years, the experiences one has throughout life are immeasurable educational opportunities that should continue, and these prepare individuals to be the pillars of the community to work towards a better world for future generations.
