Bonita Zarrillo

President Elect

Before being elected in 2013 to Coquitlam City Council, Bonita spent 20 years in sales, marketing and consumer research. She holds a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology from the University of Manitoba, is a certified Programmer/Analyst, and holds a Professional Management Certificate in Human Resources from the University of Calgary.

“Improving the lives of girls and women is a personal goal of mine both in my public and private life. As an elected official I advocate for the needs of women and girls in the community and I work to raise the profile of needs of women and girls of diverse ages, socio-economic, and cultural backgrounds in cities. I am pleased to see that women are becoming more visible in elected roles in all levels of government, yet there is still more work to be done.”
