Mayor of Vancouver
In November 2014, Gregor Robertson was elected to a third term as mayor of Vancouver. He was re-elected to continue building upon priorities such as:
• Improving public transit
• Working to end street homelessness
• Addressing housing affordability
• Making Vancouver the greenest city in the world.
Robertson is also a national advocate for urban issues as chair of the Federation of Canadian Municipalities’ Big City Mayors’ Caucus, focusing on public infrastructure, housing and transit.
Prior to entering politics, Gregor co-founded Happy Planet, a socially responsible company that produces organic juices and promotes health and nutrition. He also previously represented Vancouver-Fairview as a B.C. MLA.
Robertson is a proud father and avid fan of both soccer and hockey. He can often be seen around town supporting Vancouver’s vibrant local arts and culture community — occasionally taking a turn of his own on the tuba or drums.
