MLA Jennifer Rice, North Coast

Heavenly Father, your word says “… I give thanks for our Government” today, we thank you for Jennifer Rice – MLA for North coast. Thank you for her heart and desire to serve her constituency. May you bless her as she continues to bring wisdom in her role as Parliamentary Secretary for Emergency Preparedness. May Jennifer continue to build strong relationships with the vast riding she serves. We pray for a hedge of protection around her today. In Jesus’ name, we pray Amen.

Jennifer Rice was elected MLA for North Coast in 2013, 2017 and re-elected in 2020 and is Parliamentary Secretary for Emergency Preparedness. She is a former city councillor for the municipality of Prince Rupert. Through her work with environmental non-profits and northern community groups, Jennifer has built relationships with commercial and sports fishers, tourism operators and First Nations. She is responsible for representing a vast portion of the Great Bear Rainforest, and many remote and indigenous communities. Her first-hand experiences with the Heiltsuk First Nation during the Nathan E. Stewart oil spill as well as two earthquake and tsunami evacuations were driving factors for her interest in emergency preparedness. Considering the significant seismic risk faced in B.C. and the increasing impacts of a changing climate, she believes in helping communities adapt by building resiliency.
