Pete Fry - City Councilor
A two-term City Councillor, Pete Fry was first elected in 2018 with the second-highest vote count after standing twice in local elections and once in a provincial by-election. Pete was re-elected to a second term after a successful campaign in 2022. He has been busy as a councillor, working on constituent support, land use, renter protection, affordable housing, transparency, and good governance. He is dedicated to making our city more resilient to climate change, protecting our natural habitats, and supporting our vibrant arts, culture, and small business communities.
Pete also serves on several boards, including Vancouver's representative to the Union of BC Municipalities and the National Zero Waste Council. He is also the Chair of the Auditor General Committee and serves as a liaison to the Library Board, Vancouver City Planning Commission, Arts and Cultural Advisory Committee, and Renters and Transportation Advisory Committees.
Prior to serving on council, Pete was self-employed as a graphic designer and communications consultant. He spent years as a community advocate in his Strathcona neighborhood and worked with non-profit and community groups throughout Vancouver. Pete has lived in Vancouver since immigrating from Ireland to Canada as a child. He shares his life with his wife of over twenty years, two cats, and a dog. If he had any spare time, he would like to be illustrating comic books.
