John Coupar is a passionate Vancouverite – and he wants to bring that passion to City Hall as the Mayoral candidate for the NPA. 
Since being elected as a Vancouver Park Board Commissioner in 2011, John has spearheaded and overseen countless successful projects that have changed the face of our city. Not only did he help save the iconic Bloedel Conservatory from destruction, he was instrumental in the creation of a state of the art kitchen for residents at the Killarney Seniors Centre, he helped make the new paddling centre at False Creek a reality, his work enabled a significant upgrade to the Vanier Park dock, and he brought a hugely popular temporary zipline to Queen Elizabeth Park. 

John and his wife Heather live in Vancouver. They have two children, and John is the CEO of an eco-conscious, carbon neutral courier company.

I first met John Coupar when he was fighting to save the Bloedel Conservatory, and I was impressed with his drive and his commitment to save this iconic Vancouver landmark. When he joined the NPA slate in 2011, I knew we had someone on our team who would go the extra mile for the citizens of Vancouver - and he has, every time. With John now throwing his hat into the ring to win the Mayoral nomination for this next municipal election, I know that he will make a great Mayor for all of Vancouver.

I’m pleased to endorse fellow NPA caucus member John Coupar as our candidate for Mayor. John’s approach is always inclusive & collaborative in getting to a consensus on difficult issues. John has become familiar with navigating city hall procedures & policies, and his personal qualities make him well suited to be our next mayor. He is trustworthy and has integrity. Everyone, including city hall staff, would have no trouble communicating with him and would see him as a person with intelligence and good judgment.

I’ve witnessed firsthand John's passion for Vancouver parks, horticulture and the importance of green space in a growing city. John consistently demonstrates his belief in important core principles that will serve him, and the city well as Mayor - fiscal responsibility, good governance, and a genuine interest in working with all communities to ensure the city is the best that it can be. 

Casey Crawford

John is someone who truly listens to the community and takes what they say into account. He has attended numerous community and residents’ associations meetings and most importantly, he acts on what he hears and gets things done. He is empathetic, a true team player who knows how to get along with different groups, and he has the stature and experience to be the kind of Mayor we need.
