|Zoë Royer moved to Newport Village in 2004 and now lives in Port Moody’s Pleasantside neighbourhood with her husband and two daughters.
As a successful health administrator, Zoë Royer brings strong business skills and sincere concern for people and their issues. She works in a profession where people care for people and where thoughtful human interaction is still the best way to communicate. She also understands the challenges experienced by business owners, knowing very well what it takes to make payroll and run a successful business.
Zoë hosted exchange students from Japan, Korea and Taiwan, for 1 to 3 years at a time. This was her way to bring cultural diversity into her home and enrich the lives of her own children in a home free of any prejudice.
A dedicated volunteer, Zoë Royer believes in nurturing civic engagement and volunteerism. She served homeless persons on night shifts at Tri-Cities shelters and hosted fund raising events for the Port Moody Arts Centre and Crossroads Hospice. As former Director of the Golden Spike Days Society, she ran highly successful fundraising campaigns for special events and school projects.
The sustainable home that Zoë and her husband designed and built in Port Moody was featured in the Vancouver Sun, magazines and conferences, for its green technology. Passionate for the environment, Zoë hosted Earth Day events to build awareness of climate change and environmental protection. She also delivered lectures to architects, engineers and builders.
Years ago, Zoë experienced the hardships of being a single mother struggling to make ends meet. She knows what today’s families and persons on fixed income are going through. She knows that what keeps people going during hard times is access to affordable services such as recreation and library resources.
