Welcome to Vancouver-Mount Pleasant!

I am honoured to be the MLA for Vancouver-Mount Pleasant and serve as BC’s Minister of Advanced Education, Skills and Training (AEST).

For the most up-to-date content, please visit my Facebook and Twitter.

Please read my March 25 COVID19 update and Call to Action.

Info on COVID-19:

My constituency office is currently closed due to current events. My office is still committed to assisting constituents. You can get support from my staff by calling (604) 660-0707 or emailing melanie.mark.mla@leg.bc.ca

I recognize that there are very real concerns in the community regarding COVID-19 and that information is changing quickly.

It’s important that we support one another in this unprecedented time in order for us all to remain healthy.

After hearing from our Minister of Health Adrian Dix and our Chief Medical Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry, I will be cancelling all my non-essential travel and reducing my face-to-face interactions in and outside of my office, in order to decrease the risk to myself and others.

As Minister Dix and Dr. Henry have said, we are all in this together.

This is a fluid situation. I recommend you visit the following link for updates:

The public is also getting daily updates at 3pm from Minister of Health Adrian Dix and Chief Medical Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry. You can also tune in on Global BC or CBC Vancouver to watch live.

The province has created a phone service to provide non-medical information about COVID-19, including the latest information on travel recommendations and social distancing. Information is available in more than 110 languages, 7:30 am – 8 pm at 1-888-COVID19 (1-888-268-4319) or via text message at 604-630-0300.

I will continue to update my social media with up-to-date information.
