About Us

Our Mission

The Richmond Community Coalition’s objective is simple: involve more of our citizens in local government, increase voter turnout and have a more active, representative and dynamic coalition to make this happen – creating a more inclusive, safer and prosperous community!

The Richmond Community Coalition is made up of members of the community committed to better governance through increased civic participation, which will result in more inclusive local government. Our Richmond Coalition is transparent and democratic, comprised of concerned individuals and leaders from all walks of life – people who want to make our City a better place through enhanced citizen engagement.

We are focused on creating more opportunities for Richmond residents to get involved in local government. Our City is growing and our Governance structure needs to work to encourage higher voter turnout.

Richmond is one of the best internationally-connected cities in Canada. We need to capitalize on our City’s many global connections. We are a growing world city that needs to not only embrace, but build upon our tremendous international trade opportunities and cultural connections, while protecting our open spaces, heritage and ‘island’ way of life
In order to truly embrace our potential we need to be constantly vigilant and connect our community and community groups with local government to build a better Richmond – ‘together we are stronger’!

We believe that a focused “grass roots” initiative dedicated to attracting good candidates to local government will build a better City. The Richmond Community Coalition is here to do this: offering a true community alternative which will foster and support excellent candidates from all across our great City. Our community deserves nothing less.
