Michael Markwick

Ph.D.

Instructor - School of Communication

Michael brings twenty years of experience, including work in the senior management group of the Ontario Human Rights Commission, to his examination of democracy, social diversity and communication. In both his teaching and community engagement practices, Michael has helped students, Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal governments, non-profit organizations and businesses build their capacities to tackle the full spectrum of contentious social issues. On the North Shore, this work includes the transformation of the Dundarave Festival of Lights into a celebration of arts and culture geared to ending homelessness in our community. His research into the impact of the war on terror on democratic communication earned him a doctorate "with distinction" from Simon Fraser University.

"Michael is the President & CEO of the BC Freedom of Information and Privacy Association (https://fipa.bc.ca/), a leading advocate for open democratic government.”
