Roger Bassam has lived in North Vancouver since 1983 and has been active in local politics and as a community volunteer since 1996. Roger is currently a member of the North Vancouver District Council – having been elected in 2008 and re-elected in 2011. In addition to his Council role Roger is a member of the Metro Zero Waste Committee, Chairs the Advisory Oversight Committee and is the Council Rep on the M.O.T.I. 2nd Narrows Interchange Committee. Roger also served 3 years as a member of the Board of the North Vancouver Chamber of Commerce and was the District’s alternate on the Metro Vancouver Labour Relations Board. Roger is also a proud member of the Lynn Valley Community Association.
A graduate of Carson Graham High School, Roger has a BA in Political Science from SFU and a Certificate of Technology from BCIT and is nearing completion of an MBA from the University of Leicester. Roger works in the Information Technology sector. He and his wife Adrienne have two young children, Samantha and Jacob. The family currently lives in the Lynn Valley area.
A lifelong participant in sports Roger still plays soccer in Millar’s North Shore Soccer League, which he has been the Co-President of since 1996, and helps coach for his children’s soccer and lacrosse teams. His love of sports made his ten years of service on the North Vancouver Sports Advisory Council a very rewarding experience. Roger Chaired the Field User’s Capital Fund during this time as well as serving two years on the District Parks and Natural Environment Advisory Committee. The Bassam family spends a lot of time outdoors and it’s a good bet you will find them on a local soccer field or out walking with Lucky at Bridgeman Park or one of the District's other dog off leash parks.
