MEET OUR CANDIDATE!

Cindy-DerkazMeet our 2019 candidate, Cindy Derkaz!

Derkaz is a passionate community leader with a proven record of service, which includes over a decade as the president of the Shuswap Community Foundation. In 2012, Cindy was awarded the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal in recognition of her life-long commitment to volunteerism. Whether it is serving on the board of the Shuswap Trail Alliance, or being a part of a citizens’ group sponsoring Syrian refugees, Cindy and her husband, Don, are walking the talk when it comes to advocacy in the North Okanagan-Shuswap.

Derkaz has deep roots in the riding, having lived almost her entire life in what she describes as the “most beautiful place in the world.” She and Don live in the house she grew up in which they now share with their rescue dog, Kesler.

Small business is in Derkaz’s DNA. She learned the importance of hard work, meeting payroll, and customer service while working at her parent’s store, Derkaz Shoes, in both Vernon and Salmon Arm. She went on to apply this valuable business knowledge to build her own widely respected and successful law firm in 1981. She is an experienced lawyer and adjudicator, who has served on three appeal tribunals in BC, including a term as Vice Chair of the Environmental Appeal Board of BC.

Derkaz has earned the trust and respect of many in the riding which she calls home. She is committed to representing the entire North Okanagan-Shuswap and to working for true economic diversification, investment in opportunity and growth, reconciliation, and environmental stewardship by listening to you and advocating in a respectful tone. Derkaz is the best person for the job.

Taking your voice to Ottawa.
