Allan De Genova

Vancouver, British Columbia

These are just a few words that describe Allan De Genova: visionary<, tenacious, creative, and responsive. We honour Allan today for all of these qualities. A five-term Vancouver Park Board Commissioner, Allan made a difference. Saving Nat Bailey Stadium, advocating for affordable housing, restoring Victory Square, and rebuilding Sunset Community Centre are just a few of his initiatives for the City of Vancouver. His proudest achievement, however, is the dream he fulfilled to open Honour House, a temporary home away from home for Canadian Forces personnel, veterans, First responders and their families who are receiving medical care and treatment in the metro Vancouver area. Allan has shown remarkable leadership and his legacies will be felt for generations to come.
