The Green Party of Vancouver was founded in 1984, and has elected representatives to City Council, Park Board and School Board. In 2011, Adriane Carr - one of the party's original founders - was elected as Vancouver's first ever Green City Councillor. During her first term in office, Adriane gained the respect and admiration of Vancouver citizens who value her independent voice on Council, her strong democratic principles, and her readiness to listen to what citizens have to say and then to be a voice for them at City Hall. She was returned to Council with a record-setting 74,077 votes in the 2014 election.
In 2014, the Green Party of Vancouver celebrated the election of its first-ever caucus. In addition to returning Adriane Carr to her second term on Council, Vancouver voters elected two Green Park Board Commissioners, Stuart Mackinnon (who had also served 2008-2011) and Michael Wiebe (currently Chair of the Vancouver Park Board). Janet Fraser was elected as the lone Green School Board Trustee, where she played an important role in shaping progressive school board policy and standing up to BC Liberal education funding cuts before she, along with the rest of Vancouver School Board, was fired by the Minister of Education in 2016.
Together, the Green Party of Vancouver team is your independent voice on Council, Park Board and School Board. We bring the fresh collaborative leadership that we need in order to build a Vancouver, together.
