The Honourable David Eby

Premier of British Columbia

Premier David Eby got into public service to tackle big challenges and deliver results.

As B.C.’s Attorney General, David got big money out of politics, cracked down on money laundering, took on opioid manufacturers, and reduced car insurance rates. Under his leadership as housing minister, thousands of homes are being built and hundreds of people experience homelessness are now in more secure housing.

Prior to politics, David was an award-winning lawyer and legal scholar. He started his career on Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside, defending the homes of low-income people from developers and speculators. From 2009 to 2013, David ran the B.C. Civil Liberties Association as executive director.

David remains grounded in the values he grew up with. He is a proud husband and father with two children, Ezra and Iva. He loves playing with his kids, practicing yoga and hanging out with his wife Cailey, a family doctor in Vancouver.

As B.C.’s 37th premier, David is working hard to build a better, stronger future for everyone.
