Andre Isakov completed both his bachelor’s degree in political science and his master’s degree in urban studies at Simon Fraser University.

He’s currently  the Community and Economic Development Officer at the Municipality of Harrison Hot Springs, a position which involves developing an economic development plan, community branding strategy, community needs assessment, corporate greenhouse gas emission reduction strategy, solid waste services, parks and trails master plan, among many other interesting policy areas and initiatives.

He’s currently working on community branding for Harrison Hot Springs. It’s a project with a direct link to his capstone master’s project, where he examined business improvement areas and local economic development in BC.

He says, “it is truly rewarding being part of the community and knowing that you help to build a better community.”

He’s also co-authoring a book on local economic development and revitalisation, to be published in early 2012 by Rotman-UTP Publishing.
