Director at Large Colin Plant

Director Colin Plant, Councillor District of Saanich

Colin is a Councillor in the District of Saanich and a Director on the Capital Regional District board. In addition to his political work, he is also a high school Drama teacher. He has four sons, one moody cat, and an amazingly supportive wife.

Colin would like to continue to serve on the AVICC executive to help address and advance the issues that our organization deems important.

Having an executive comprised of members from throughout the AVICC is also important. Despite living in the island’s largest municipality, he grew up in the small interior community of Sicamous and understands the challenges small communities face. Additionally, Saanich is a municipality that faces both rural and urban issues, much like the AVICC itself.

In his current role for the District of Saanich Colin chairs the Healthy Saanich Committee and serves on the Personnel Committee. He also chaired the Saanich LGBTQ committee in 2016. In his role as a CRD Director he is Chair of the CRD Arts Commission. He also chairs the CRD Traffic Safety Commission and is a member of the CRD Governance, Planning and Protective Services, Regional Parks and Core Area Liquid Waste Management committees.

His educational background includes a Master’s Degree in Leadership, and bachelor degrees in Theatre and Education. He has been a classroom teacher for 16 years. He has come to learn that sometimes the political and educational environments are surprisingly similar. It would be a privilege to continue to serve the AVICC membership.
