Lisa Beare was elected as the MLA for Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows in October 2020 and serves as the Minister of Post-Secondary Education and Future Skills. She previously served as the Minister of Tourism, Arts, Culture and Sport and Deputy House Leader and was first elected in 2017.

Lisa grew up in Maple Ridge and has been raising a young family in the community. She previously worked as a flight attendant.

Lisa demonstrated her commitment to good governance early on, with a diploma in local government management from the University of Victoria. Long a passionate advocate for social causes and a committed volunteer, Lisa got her start in politics in 2014 when she was elected as a member of the local school board. Her time on the school board and her own experiences as a mother led her to become an advocate for quality public education for all British Columbians.
