Park Board Commissioner Catherine Evans
Commissioner Catherine Evans of Vision Vancouver joins the Park Board for a first term. Commissioner Evans believes that public spaces are increasingly important to the quality of urban life, and that the Park Board –responsible for the majority of Vancouver’s public spaces – has a special responsibility to enhance the livability of our city.
She is an active member of her community. Commissioner Evans was appointed to the Vancouver Public Library's Board of Directors in 2009 and served as chair for three years. She was also chair of Point Grey Secondary School Parent Advisory Council and a founding member of the BC Society for Public Education.
A policy advisor, lawyer, and senior public service manager for 15 years, Commissioner Evans contributed to significant advances in elder law, adult guardianship, human rights, employment equity, and pay equity. For nearly the past 10 years, she co-owned Ethos Strategy Group, a planning, research, and public relations firm.
Commissioner Evans has a BA from Dalhousie University, a M.Div. from the University of Toronto, and a LLB from York University.
