Rebecca Bligh was first elected to Vancouver City Council in 2018. Motivated by a core value of community, Rebecca’s conviction and receptivity are now serving our city at large.

During her time on Council, Rebecca has fought for taxpayers, accountability and fiscal responsibility. She has stood up for diverse and inclusive communities. A champion for livability, over the past four years she has voted time and time again to make life more affordable for Vancouverites.

Rebecca is dedicated to addressing many of the major challenges facing Vancouver including the affordability crisis and issues around public safety and the poisoned drug crisis.

Rebecca has served since 2018 as a director for the Federation of Canadian Municipalities, currently Chair of Governance and is the Chair of the Standing Committee on Finance with the City of Vancouver.

Outside of politics Rebecca is the founder of BLACKPiiN a consulting and facilitation practice providing leadership development to executives and teams, working with them to define, develop and implement strategies to enable success by uncovering how their leadership can achieve their desired results.

Passionate about giving back to her community, Rebecca has volunteered on boards and supported initiatives that give back to community; including recently established, Let’s Eat, and prior to 2018 the Dr. Peter AIDS Foundation and Legado Initiatives, providing training and development in Ethiopia and Mozambique.

Rebecca lives in Northeast False Creek with her wife Laura, and son Jackson, and their dog Kingsley.
