Shamim Shivji: I am a lawyer, mediator and small business owner. I have been a resident of Vancouver since 2003. My family has operated a hardware and lumber business in the city for over 40 years. Over the past 7 years, I also served as a Director of the West Point Grey Community Association (WPGCA), a charitable organization. For the past 2.5 years, I was honoured to serve as the WPGCA President. The WPGCA is part of a network of 23 Community Centre Associations that jointly operate 23 Community Centres across Vancouver with the Park Board. Through my volunteer work with the WPGCA, I have come to deeply value the central role of community organizations and spaces in connecting residents and building our communities. I want to put my experience to work as your Park Board Commissioner. I am passionate about community participation in government decision-making. Working together, we make better decisions.
