He was an adjunct professor of law at the University of British Columbia, president of the HIV/AIDS Legal Network, and served on the Vancouver Foundation’s Health and Social Development Committee. From 2009 to 2013, he also ran the B.C. Civil Liberties Association as executive director.

As BC’s 37th Premier, he hit the ground running, taking immediate action on issues important to people. From rate freezes and credits to help British Columbians with rising prices, to a public safety and prolific offenders plan, to increasing internationally trained doctors and nurses, to protecting renters from evictions and removing barriers to help more build more housing across the province, Premier Eby is continuing to focus on tackling problems impacting British Columbians.
