Profile

The Vancouver Island Party was founded by Robin Richardson in 2016. The party aims to “establish Vancouver Island as an 11th province of Canada and benefit more fully as a region of British Columbia economically, socially, environmentally and culturally.”

If the party wins, it plans to ask the province to hold a referendum in 2021 on the island and ask people whether they are in favour of Vancouver Island becoming a province of Canada.

The party ran four candidates during the 2017 provincial election. However, the party did not win any seats and received 0.03% of the popular vote.
