Peter is a father of two, Canadian entrepreneur, and proud Richmond resident of over 16 years. He is asking for your vote this October to make some important improvements and developments to our community.
Born in Tianjin, China, Peter graduated from one of China’s top universities in 1994. He moved to Richmond in 2002, with his wife and daughter, where his son was born soon after. Together, the Liu family have made Richmond home and enjoy taking advantage of the parks, recreational facilities, and all that life in the City offers.
Peter is an entrepreneur who has been involved in a range of successful ventures, including technology, wine export and STEM education. In addition, he continues to be a deeply involved volunteer in the community, serving as Director of the CCSA, Gulf of Georgia Cannery Society, Richmond Caring Place Society, Canada China Sports Foundation, and member of the Rotary E-Club of Lulu Island. Peter Liu is also a funding member for Cafe 1029, which incubated many ventures in Canada.
His work with the Gulf of Georgia Cannery is a commitment to the history of this community and the industries that built it. Preserving heritage structures like the cannery helps successive generations understand the economic and cultural diversity that made Richmond the community it is. Peter’s involvement with Richmond Caring Place Society, including his support for a major expansion, reflects his mission to help vulnerable people. Caring Place 2, which provides first-class commercial office and meeting space for non-profit agencies, is a heart of this community and the genesis of an immense amount of philanthropic work that strengthens all residents and especially lifts those most in need.
Peter Liu is running for Richmond City Council because, while Richmond is a healthy, livable community, he is confident that fresh ideas around the council table can help address challenges that remain, including housing affordability, safety, and transportation.
His experience as a business leader, with an interest and expertise in technology and management, offers an original, fresh perspective to Richmond voters.
Richmond is already one of Canada’s most desirable, welcoming communities. Preparing for the future with vision and innovation will ensure we retain our status as an enviable place to live, work, and recreate.
Working alongside all communities, Peter Liu is your new choice to get things done on City Council.
