Councillor Adriane Carr

Councillor Adriane Carr was re-elected in 2014 for her second term on Vancouver City Council.

Born in Vancouver, Councillor Carr earned a master's degree in urban geography under David Ley and Walter Hardwick from UBC in 1980, writing her thesis on the role of citizen groups in building community spirit and shaping development in the neighbourhood of Kitsilano.

Councillor Carr taught for 12 years at Vancouver's Langara College, serving on the Langara Faculty Association Board and, for several years, as chair of the department of interdisciplinary studies. In 1989, she left teaching to join the executive team at Western Canada Wilderness Committee, a group founded by her husband, helping it grow into one of Canada's largest membership-based conservation groups.

Councillor Carr is a well-known leader in Green politics. In 1983 she co-founded the BC Green Party, North America's first Green Party, and in 1984 co-founded the Green Party of Vancouver. From 2000–2006, she led the BC Green Party and became the first Green leader in Canada to be included in televised leaders' debates. Under her leadership the party garnered over 12% of the vote – one of the highest levels of voter support of any Green Party in the world. In 2006, after co-chairing the successful campaign to elect Elizabeth May as leader of the Green Party of Canada, she was appointed as May's deputy leader, serving from 2006 to January 2014, and ran for federal office in Vancouver Centre in 2008 and 2011. She currently chairs the Vancouver elected Greens caucus.

Councillor Carr has two adult children and lives in Vancouver's West End with her husband Paul George. She has co-chaired the Canadian Women Voters' Congress non-partisan Women's Campaign School since 2009.
