Let's build a thriving Vancouver that is welcoming!

Hi, my name is Morgane Oger and I want to be your representative on Vancouver City Council.

On August 9, I announced that I'm running for City Council in the October 15 election with Progress Vancouver. Like you, I love the city and I want our city to be a place where we all thrive.  Last year, 7000 people moved out of Vancouver when 100,000 moved into BC. School enrollment dropped by over 1000 as families left the city. The opioid crisis is raging while thousands of people are unhoused in our city.

Together we can make Vancouver a city where everyone thrives. And for that I need your support.  I’m writing today to ask for your support.  We need to elect a majority on Vancouver City Council that includes myself and all of the Progress Vancouver City Council candidates. We will work to make Vancouver better. 


When elected to City Council, I'll work for a thriving Vancouver where people can afford to live in the homes they need. My priority will be on those who need it most, in their own neighbourhoods. When we work together, great things get done, and that’s why the coalition for the greater good that Progress Vacouver is makes sense to me.

I’ve worked as a leader in non-profit human rights advocacy for many years and am proud of the wins I have helped bring in - from helping LGBTQIA persons get to safety in Canada and elsewhere to gaining fundamental rights to policy change to holding people accountable for the hatred they spread against others to banning conversion therapy in Canada.

In my leadership role as Chair of Vancouver District Parent Advisory Council I helped families advocate to keep their schools open. While DPAC Chair in 2016 chair I organised parents and together we stopped VSB from closing 13 public schools.

While a member of the City of Vancouver LGBTQ2+ Advisory Committee, I engaged with institutions such as the Vancouver Police Department and the Park Board to help them and their partners be accountable. As Vice President of the BC NDP, I helped oversee financial reform to stop Big Business and Big Labour from corrupting our democracy. In my advocacy work, I've fought for the truth and accountability, and for it to be the basis of decisions that bring real outcomes. 

I am running for City Council with Progress Vancouver because that is what I intend to do for you.   

BUT, I need your help.  

I learned early as a Tech leader and as an entrepreneur that success is measured with tangible delivered outcomes that make things better.  My experience has taught me that an excellent government works when led by someone who knows how to be a leader and who has a track record of successfully running organisations that deliver outcomes.
