Knut Bjorndal


Born in Bergen Norway 

At the age of 3 my family moved to Canada.   I grew up in Prince Rupert where I lived for 18 years.

I attended University and completed a degree in Economics. I worked over the years in the fishing and in the forest industry.

In 2006 moved back to this region, Port Edward, where I met my wife Dianne Wampler, we have been married for 10 years and we love living in this area.

Together we have four children and four grandchildren.

Dianne and I enjoy boating and marine activities, hiking and walking.

I have served two previous terms on Council in Port Edward.

I have been active in community organizations: the Prince Rupert and District Chamber of Commerce as well as the Rotary Club.

As the Port Edward Mayor I am now on the following committees:

  • Northern Health
  • Northwest Regional Advisory Committee
  • Port Edward Harbour Authority

I look forward to the next four years and what I can do to support and enhance our beautiful community.
