Hi, I am Caitlin

I am a climate advocate, lawyer at First Peoples Law, and avid park user living on the unceded territories of the Musqueam, Squamish & Tsleil-Waututh Nations. 


I see parks and public spaces as central to tackling climate change and readying our community for its impacts. They are important sites for recognizing and upholding Indigenous laws and jurisdiction, and for building inclusive communities.


I am committed to help OneCity bring its vision for a sustainable and just city to address these issues on Park Board. From my work in environmental law, and current role supporting Indigenous Nations in their efforts to advance their inherent rights, I have experience with building relationships, listening, and finding points for collaboration. I am energized by OneCity’s emphasis on tackling climate justice, without leaving anybody behind, and understand the importance of electing candidates who share these values across City Council, School Board, and Park Board.

I have a background in climate policy and public interest environmental law, including as a trained climate presenter with the Climate Reality Project. While at law school at the University of Victoria, I was on the board of the Environmental Law Centre and was a researcher for climate litigation cases.  


I have volunteered with a number of social justice and accessibility initiatives, including with the West End Seniors Network, Meals on Wheels, Rainbow Kitchen, and as a supervisor for law student projects through Pro Bono Students Canada.


I interact with Vancouver parks on a daily basis as a cyclist-commuter from Strathcona and an amateur triathlete.


I hope to have the opportunity to bring my experiences and perspectives to Park Board, and am committed to learning from, and talking to others. I look forward to hearing from you and other community members about your priorities in parks and how we can use these spaces to connect Vancouver's communities.
