Mark Robinson for Nanaimo-Ladysmith School Board

Mark Robinson

Mark is honoured to live, work, and play on the traditional and historic lands of the Snuneymuxw, Snaw-Na-Was and Stz’uminus First Nations people. As a single parent of three daughters, it is here that he actively raises his two young children who attend school here in Nanaimo-Ladysmith Public Schools, while his eldest daughter is a recent graduate from our district and has since married her soulmate.

Mark has been enthusiastically active in our school district for the past 7 years as a member of his children's parent advisory council (PAC), president of the PAC, vice-chair of the district's now defunct race relations committee, and now serves on Nanaimo-Ladysmith's district parent advisory council (DPAC). Mark has also previously served on the board of directors for Volunteer Nanaimo, the Nanaimo Family Court committee, and Nanaimo's Culture and Heritage Commission. Professionally, Mark is an essential worker with NACL (Nanaimo Association for Community Living) as a front line community support worker.
