Jennifer Johal (Achieving for Delta)

Jennifer Johal is a mother of two, an educator and a Delta businesswoman.

She is running on a commitment to being a bridge between community members and their local government and an advocate for their views on council. A former elementary school teacher, Jennifer made the leap into business management when she took over administration of the family business, Raja Trailer in Tilbury. She brings a deep understanding of the needs of the local business community.

Carving out a place for herself as a woman in a male-dominated industry has been a journey that she is proud to have modeled for her daughter. Jennifer is passionate about diversity and wants to be a part of ensuring that our decision makers in Delta are representative of the community that they serve.

Jennifer believes in Mayor George Harvie’s vision for a safe, livable and inclusive Delta and is eager to bring her humility, grit and passion for her community to the Achieving for Delta team. She is committed to achieving thriving and revitalized communities in Delta where generations are kept together.

In her free time, when she’s not at her kids’ sports games and activities, Jennifer enjoys spending time with family and friends, playing a round of golf or enjoying an evening at one of her favourite local restaurants.

What are your election issues?

I am a mother, an educator, and local businesswoman bringing an understanding of the Tilbury business community through my daily work helping to manage my family’s business, Raja Trailer.

I am running for council on a commitment to being a bridge between community members, business owners, and their local government. Our diversity in Delta, across age, race, religion, identity, culture, income, and abilities, is what makes us strong.

We need a council that not only listens to the people, but is reflective of the diverse population it represents. It’s time to finally elect councillors who reflect the diversity of our community.

The Achieving for Delta team is committed to working with the Mayors Task Force on Diversity, Inclusion and Anti-Racism, established by Mayor George Harvie in 2020, to continue to find meaningful and tangible ways to affect change. We commit to continuing to hold every second council meeting in North Delta to ensure all residents have equal representation at the council table and working with community partners to deploy an emergency food bank in North Delta. Our community groups must not be left to meet this need alone.

The Achieving for Delta team is running on a six-point platform focused on investing in parks and recreation infrastructure, keeping Delta safe, keeping taxes low, working to keep generations together in Delta, building a fair and inclusive community and taking real action on climate change and protecting our farmland.

The Achieving for Delta team includes candidates with diverse perspectives and experience, who are all united by Mayor George Harvie’s vision to move Delta forward. The only way we can achieve our goals and deliver significant investments for Delta is with the entire Achieving for Delta team elected to council and school board.
