Pat Corbett-Labatt

As a 39-year resident, retired professional, volunteer, wife and mother, I’m dedicated to preserving and improving the quality of life in Port Hardy.

An honest and strong woman, I believe that it’s vital to give back to my community. While raising my family, taking courses, and working, I have always been involved in our community (e.g. volunteered for Mothers Against Drunk Drivers, Port Hardy Hockey Association, Filomi Days Committee, PHSS Grad committees, Port Hardy Twinning Society, Community Consultative Committee).

While working for North Island College, I was fully committed to my career. I taught traditional and online courses, but also became involved in many college-wide administrative roles. I’ve been chair of college-wide departments, served on hiring committees, did performance evaluations, oversaw budgets, scheduled courses, worked to ensure educational quality plus worked hard to maintain educational programming at the Port Hardy campus.

I believe (1) it is vital for Port Hardy’s city hall to be fully transparent; (2) a variety of technological means can be used to improve and increase communication between the council and the citizens; (3) in increasing connections and consulting with people in all areas of our community and giving everyone a voice; and (4) in promoting and supporting employment initiatives.

I am retired and have the time needed to fully commit to Port Hardy. My educational qualifications, administrative and committee experience will be useful tools in being a Port Hardy councillor. I will help make Port Hardy a better place to live, work, and play.
