In 1986, Karen and Steve Wilk moved to Edmonton from Toronto after attending university and working in their chosen fields - Steve as an Occupational Health professional, and Karen as a teacher, studying to be a religious minister.
The young couple were interested in living somewhere else in Canada, so Steve accepted a job with the Alberta Government in Occupational Health and Safety. While the job did not turn out to be all that rewarding, and he later pursued other career opportunities - they both fell in love with Edmonton and decided to make it home. Their three daughters were all born and raised in Edmonton - Erica born in 1988, Nadine in 1991, and Melissa in 1996.
They first lived in the community of Grovenor, and then moved to their current home in Laurier Heights in 1992. They chose Laurier because of its river valley location, proximity to the downtown, and because they like mature neighbourhoods. They love the location and their neighbourhood.
