Selina Robinson was elected as the MLA for Coquitlam-Maillardville in 2013, 2017 and 2020. She is the Minister of Post-Secondary Education and Future Skills and previously served as Minister of Finance, as Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing and as Minister of Citizens' Services.

Selina served as the Official Opposition critic for mental health and addictions, seniors, local government and sports.

Born and raised in the suburbs of Montreal before relocating to Richmond B.C. with her family, Selina has been actively engaged in the Coquitlam community since moving there more than 20 years ago.

As a former city councillor, Selina fought to protect the health of children and families by introducing a local ban on cosmetic pesticides, and worked to improve access for people with disabilities as chair of the Coquitlam Universal Access-Ability Advisory Committee. Prior to being elected, Selina had a home-based family therapy practice, was the Director of Development for SHARE Family and Community Services and was a Counselling Instructor and Program Developer at the University of British Columbia's Life and Learning Centre and Vancouver Community College. Selina lives with her husband Dan in the Ranch Park neighbourhood of Coquitlam-Maillardville, where they raised their now adult children, Aaron and Leya.

As a cancer survivor, Selina does the annual Ride to Conquer Cancer alongside her husband and they have raised more than $500,000 with team Way Hey! Hey!. When she is not working or training for the ride Selina can be found in her garden or in a kayak.
