Eby announces new roles for three B.C. MLAs
Legislative Assembly of British Columbia
(L-R) Lisa Beare, George Chow and Ravi Parmar have been assigned new roles in the B.C. government cabinet.

Ahead of the throne speech that will start the spring session in B.C.’s legislature, three MLAs have been appointed to new positions.

Lisa Beare, MLA for Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows, will take over the role of Minister of Post-Secondary and Future Skills, which was left vacant following Selina Robinson’s resignation from the role.

This opens up Beare’s current role of Citizens’ Services, which will go to George Chow, MLA for Vancouver-Fraserview.

“Lisa and George have tremendous experience, and in these new roles they will both be dedicated to supporting people,” David Eby, B.C.’s premier, said in a news release.

“We have made incredible progress in modernizing services that people depend on, like delivering high-speed internet to more communities. George will continue that work, as well as further our important anti-racism data initiatives.”

Under former-premier John Horgan, Chow had served as the Minister of State for Trade from 2017 to 2022.

An Island MLA has also been appointed a new role under Beare’s ministry. Ravi Parmar, MLA for Langford-Juan de Fuca, has been appointed to be the Parliamentary Secretary for International Credentials. The province says this role is dedicated to help internationally educated professionals to work in B.C.
