Councillor Linda Buchanan

Please join us for an engaging lunchtime discussion with Linda Buchanan, trailblazing City Councillor and Mayoral Candidate for the City of North Vancouver in the Fall 2018 municipal election. This dynamic conversation will explore the importance of women leaders in city building, and provide deep insight into the opportunities and challenges women face in political leadership positions.

As a prominent civic leader, Linda has helped shape a livable, vibrant city that is welcoming to newcomers, families and seniors and supports public health and happiness. In her role on City Council, she has helped create affordable housing, active transportation and a more active community on the North Shore. She is passionate about city-building and how its impacts need to be considered from a woman’s perspective.

Research shows that women care about different issues in city-building, and that cities are used by and benefit women and men differently. The United Nations states that government representation should comprise at least 30% women before governments produce public policy representing women’s concerns and begin to change the way they do business. Statistics also report that Canada needs over 1,400 more women in elected municipal office to reach the minimum 30% target so that issues impacting women can be addressed.

Political trailblazer Linda Buchanan is one of our best local examples helping to close this gap. ULI is thrilled to have her as our inaugural guest for the WLI Learning from Leaders program.
