Margaret Reid loves Chilliwack. She grew up attending Chilliwack’s public schools, her first job was at the Chilliwack Family YMCA and she attended many events at the long-gone icons: the Paramount Theatre and Chilliwack Coliseum. She left for schooling and returned to raise her family with her husband (who she met at Chilliwack Middle School.)
Anyone involved in community service in Chilliwack knows Margaret; she's been the District Parent Advisory Council Representative for her children's school, a United Way Community Builder, a member of Chilliwack Healthier Communities Poverty Reduction Table and the City-Wide Gardening Project, the President of the Downtown Chilliwack Community Market, and a founding board member of both Chilliwack Citizens for Change and Chilliwack Pride. She also co-created and managed Extra FARE - a food hamper for community members with allergies and intolerances in partnership with Bowls of Hope and United Way. Experienced in board leadership with a deep understanding of Chilliwack’s educational system and a passion for positive change, her professional experience is unparalleled.
Margaret loves thrifting, enjoying Chilliwack's outdoors, and spending time with her weird and amazing family. Her educational platform prioritizes student support, food security, and mental health- click here to read all about it.
