B.C. LIEU­TENANT GOV­ER­NOR

Vancouver Magazine - - Taste -

PRE­VI­OUSLY # 32, 2016 Af­ter serv­ing as CEO of non-pro t ad­vo­cacy group YWCA Metro Van­cou­ver for 15 years, as well as sit­ting on var­i­ous boards and chair­ing the Greater Van­cou­ver Board of Trade, Janet Austin got the call from the prime min­is­ter in March. She likely won’t be pressed into ac­tion the way her pre­de­ces­sor, Ju­dith Gui­chon, was in the af­ter­math of 2017’s pro­vin­cial elec­tion. But it’s ob­vi­ous that the new viceroy will use her plat­form to con­tinue to push for equal­ity in the work­place and hous­ing for sin­gle moth­ers, two pil­lars of her work with YWCA.
