Ginger Gosnell-Myers is of Nisga’a and Kwakwak’awakw heritage and is passionate about advancing Aboriginal rights and knowledge, while breaking down barriers between Aboriginal peoples and all Canadians.

Throughout 2008-2011 Ginger worked on the Environics Urban Aboriginal Peoples Study as both Project Manager and Public Engagement Director. The UAPS is Canada’s largest research study on Aboriginal people living in urban environments, and has become the leading research on urban Aboriginal people’s values, aspirations, experiences, and identity.

She has facilitated and spoken at several provincial, national and international events, including the International Indigenous Women & Wellness Conference, the Senate Standing Committee on Aboriginal Peoples, and the United Nations Permanent Forum of Indigenous Peoples. Ginger is featured in the inspirational book: Notes from Canada’s Young Activists: A Generation Stands up for Change (2007). In 2012 as part of the CBC documentary series “8th Fire”, Ginger was highlighted and profiled for her views on Aboriginal issues and relations in Canada.

Ginger is currently the Aboriginal City Planner with the City of Vancouver where she is working across departments to bridge Aboriginal policies and programs, and is central to advancing Vancouver as the world’s first City of Reconciliation.
