Meet The Candidate

Conservative Candidate for Burnaby North-Seymour, Heather Leung is a Hong Kong-born Canadian with a Master's Degree in Occupational Therapy from San Jose State University, California.  She is fluent in English, Cantonese and Mandarin.  Heather and her husband are parents to three grown children. They have resided and raised their family in Burnaby since 2003.  Heather aspires to bring forward legislation in Ottawa that will strengthen families and improve the economy.

Heather has been working as an occupational therapist for 28 years in Canada, the US and Taiwan. She currently works in a long term care facility in Vancouver where she provides specialized support to residents battling dementia and physical disabilities.  She is particularly concerned by the alarming increase in the number of young people whose lives have been seriously impacted by substance abuse.  As recently as three years ago, the youngest residents at the care facility were in their early 70s.  Heather now sees long-term patients in their early 30s whose lives have been forever changed by drug overdoses.  Heather sees a need for increased government support for prevention and rehab of young adults from substance abuse.  Heather’s commitment to the wellness of families and the vulnerable extends to her volunteerism as a public speaker to seniors and parents on a variety of topics including fall prevention, joint protection, character training and parenting. 

As a first generation immigrant to Canada, Heather knows first-hand the struggles of making ends meet under difficult circumstances. She understands the challenges that people in this riding face with the high cost of living and comparatively low wages. She would like to help create better job opportunities and more affordable housing options for the residents of Burnaby North - Seymour. 

Heather recognizes the opportunity to bring prosperity to our community by... Read Bio
