Dennis King grew up in Georgetown, graduating from Montague Regional High School in 1990. After studying journalism in Ontario, he returned to PEI knowing that he wanted to live, work and raise a family here. He first worked as a reporter with the Eastern Graphic and then moved on to be the editor of the Island Farmer and Atlantic Fish Farming publications, earning several awards for his journalism.

Dennis later joined the government, working in communications and eventually serving as Director of Communications for Premier Pat Binns. During those years, he gained a keen insight into how government operates and impacts people’s lives. He later worked as the Director of Communications and Business Development with the Mi’kmaq Confederacy of Prince Edward Island and as Executive Director of the PEI Seafood Processors Association before embracing entrepreneurship and joining the private sector.

Dennis was elected as leader of the Progressive Conservative Party of Prince Edward Island on February 9, 2019. He was elected as the MLA for District 15, Brackley - Hunter River, in April 2019 and was sworn in as the 33rd Premier of Prince Edward Island, also serving as Minister responsible for Acadian and Francophone Affairs, Indigenous Affairs, and Intergovernmental Affairs.

Dennis was re-elected as the MLA for District 15, Brackley - Hunter River, and Premier on April 3rd, 2023.

Dennis and his wife Jana are proud parents of Jacob, Camdyn, and Callum and live in Brookfield.
