Commissioner Stuart Mackinnon

Commissioner Stuart Mackinnon of the Green Party joins the Park Board for a third term.

Better parks and recreation for Vancouver has been Commissioner Mackinnon's passion for many years. He has been an advocate for parks and green space issues, with a focus on access, preservation, and conservation.

A retired teacher from Killarney Secondary, Commissioner Mackinnon is a believer in life-long learning. He has a BA in anthropology, a BEd in teaching English as a second language, and a MA Ed in leadership and administration.

Commissioner Mackinnon believes we must honour Vancouver's rich, natural beauty by prioritizing ecological, social, and economic sustainability for projects undertaken by the Park Board, and take a proactive stance toward increasing biodiversity, protecting wildlife, and preserving habitat.

He will work in close collaboration with partners and staff to provide a welcoming and inclusive standard at every Park Board facility, for all ages, genders, abilities, and backgrounds. In addition, he will promote climate action, reconciliation, active transportation, and clean, safe public spaces for everyone.
