"There is power in community."
I am thrilled to be your BC Green candidate for MLA in the upcoming by-election in Langford-Juan de Fuca!
My name is Camille Currie. I was born in Metchosin, and I have been a part of the transformation of the Westshore Communities over the years. In 2018 my spouse, two teenage children and I chose to make Langford our home. Recently, I founded Canada Pacific Health Care Matters Society, which operates through BC Health Care Matters.
For the past two years I‘ve been responding with full force to the healthcare crisis in BC. Bringing together social media, news media, and like-minded activists to expose the crisis from many perspectives, my team and I motivated over 50,000 people to sign a petition demanding action and accountability from our provincial government. This was submitted to the Legislature last May. My goal has always been clear: a better, safer, healthier future for all British Columbians.
I’m seeking to represent the people of Langford-Juan de Fuca to further the work I have been doing in healthcare, and to bring the voices and concerns of our community into the legislature. I want to join a team that is solutions-based and grounded in the wellbeing of our community, and this wonderful place that we call home. That team is Sonia Furstenau and the BC Greens.
Camille Currie is the founder and President of Canada Pacific Health Care Matters Society that operates through BC Health Care Matters. Outside of activism, Camille is an entrepreneur and owner of Actualize Personal Training. She became a personal trainer because of her passion for helping individuals improve their health and well being. Camille is also part of a highly respected family-owned local business which her husband owns and operates, providing marine repair services to the Westshore and Greater Victoria.
Camille received an undergraduate degree in political science and economics from the University of Alberta. She has held a number of positions in the public, private and volunteer sector. She is known for being a conscientious, articulate and committed team member who values integrity above all.
Camille is known for her “Let’s get it done!” approach to problems. When her family lost its family doctor in January 2022, she thought of the thousands of others without a family doctor. “My voice, their voice!” She responded to this crisis, which is so acute for families in the Westshore, by engaging social media, news media and like-minded activists to expose the crisis. She has organized rallies and public meetings to ensure diverse perspectives were honoured and listened to. Camille has worked collaboratively and respectfully with BC health professionals and elected officials and continues to challenge every citizen to find their voice in all matters that affect them, including health. Camille is passionate about public engagement and universal health care and if elected, will continue to build on her leadership in those areas.
