MITZIE HUNTER  Ontario Member of Parliament, Scarborough Guildwood

I have known Mitzie for over a decade and honoured to call her a friend. Mitzie’s optimism is only outpaced by her passion for creating a more just society where the less fortunate have a voice and hope for a fulfilled future. We first met while working on Toronto’s bid for the 2008 Summer Olympic Games. Her rise as one of the main influencers in Toronto’s urban discourse is becoming legendary. As a first generation immigrant from the Caribbean, Mitzie brings a perspective that is relevant and poignant for any modern global city. The former CEO of Greater Toronto CivicAction Alliance (CivicAction) she led a non-partisan agenda, building strategic partnerships, and launched campaigns, programs and organizations that transform our region

 

What has been your most important lesson as a city builder?

“I was most inspired as co-chair of the Emerging Leaders Network seeing the power of rising leaders as they become city builders. I can see that these young leaders in our network and Fellows program will eventually lead our cities, province and nation. We must constantly give space to rising leaders so they can hone their city building skills.”
