Heavenly Father, we lift up the Hon. Lisa Beare, Minister of Tourism, Arts and Culture to you today. Grant Lisa wisdom and understanding as she continues in her new role as MLA and in cabinet. We also ask that your favour would rest on Lisa as she interacts with her staff and all those under her leadership. Amen
Lisa Beare was elected as the MLA for Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows in May 2017. She is the Minister of Tourism, Arts and Culture.
Lisa grew up in Maple Ridge and has been raising a young family in the community. She previously worked as a flight attendant. Lisa demonstrated her commitment to good governance early on, with a diploma in local government management from the University of Victoria.
Long a passionate advocate for social causes and a committed volunteer, Lisa got her start in politics in 2014 when she was elected as a member of the local school board. Her time on the school board and her own experiences as a mother led her to become an advocate for quality public education for all British Columbians.
