CHAIR, GREATER VANCOUVER BOARD OF TRADE (GVBT ); CEO OF CPAS OF BC
Having left her long-time gig as a managing partner at Dentons in August 2017 to serve as the grandmaster of B.C.’S accountants, Lori Mathison added the GVBT to her resumé in June of this year. Both roles focus on the economic issues facing the province, from labour shortages to real estate, and one can expect her to put pressure on the politicians crowned in October’s municipal elections. She’s already been a harsh critic of both the B.C. government’s action on housing aordability and its elimination of the Medical Services Plan and subsequent new payroll tax.
