Andrea Reimer

Councillor, City of Vancouver

First elected in 2002 as a School Board member with the Green Party, Andrea was inspired by Gregor Robertson’s leadership to join Vision Vancouver and was elected to City Council in 2008. Andrea was appointed in 2008 as the Chair of the City’s Planning and Environment Committee and Council lead on the award-winning Greenest City Action Plan, overseeing Vancouver’s efforts to become a global leader in environmental action. A strong advocate for open government reforms, Andrea brought in a world-leading Open Data program cited by BC Business magazine as the reason for naming the City of Vancouver the province’s most innovative organization in 2011. Prior to being elected to City Council, Andrea was the Executive Director of the Wilderness Committee, a position she held from 2002.
