Councillor Noel Muller
I moved to Sechelt in 1994, attended West Sechelt Elementary and graduated in 2000 from Chatelech Secondary with a Provincial Scholarship. In 2005, I graduated from UBC with a BA in Economics and Geography. While at UBC, I was active in the political debate circuit and was chosen by my peers to lead the delegation to the largest Model UN in the world, the National Model UN (NCAA), held annually at UN Headquarters in New York.
I returned to the Sunshine Coast to raise my daughter and become more engaged in the community. Active at both the Federal and Provincial political levels, my interest is in helping produce a shift towards better environmental stewardship.
Other key interests include youth engagement and the re-generation of our civic and political capacity in Canada, and locally. I am active with the locally grown Jellyfish Project Initiative, which seeks to inspire younger generations to commit to political involvement and environmental stewardship.
In my view, my primary contribution to District Council will be emerging perspectives on sustainable economic development for Sechelt and the Coast, as well as youth engagement.
With carpentry red seal endorsement, I have worked on a variety of projects including the Shangri-la Hotel Vancouver and the Vancouver Olympic Village and am currently engaged in residential construction throughout the Sunshine Coast.
When not working, I enjoy getting out into the natural environment. I am an avid naturalist, hiker, and sports enthusiast. Although comfortable in the political and professional arena, I am truly most at home in the rugged back-country of BC.
