Elizabeth Harvey

Elizabeth Harvey is a passionate and transformative not-for-profit executive dedicated to empowering individuals and groups to affect positive change for themselves, and for and within their communities.

Elizabeth has worked in politics, association management, health care advocacy, health promotion, and most recently as a senior bureaucrat in an Indigenous government. 

She has lead teams that championed the passing of Ryan’s Law – ensuring that Ontario schools allow children to carry their asthma rescue inhalers, ran the impactful Driven to Quit Campaign – that engaged tens of thousands of Ontarians to quit smoking for a month (or more) for the chance to win a new car, and built a highly successfully environmental not-for-profit that engaged community members to deliver energy efficient lightbulbs – whilst informing hundreds of thousands of their neighbours across the country and sparking positive behavioural change.

Most recently, she has supported Métis governments at the local level to build capacity to advance self-government, and fostered the government-to-government relationship between the Métis Nation and Canada.

A descendant of settlers, Elizabeth loves to sing in a choir, writes haiku poetry, and is married to a wonderfully supportive husband and the proud mother of two inspiring teenaged daughters.
