Community Advisory Group

The Pacific National Exhibition is owned by the City of Vancouver and governed by a City Council appointed Board of Directors.

The mission of the PNE is to enrich the quality of life at Hastings Park by providing a wide range of family entertainment and events that invite guests to celebrate Vancouver’s heritage, culture and diverse communities within a vibrant, urban public park.


The Community Advisory Group (CAG) is to provide constructive input and feedback to PNE staff regarding items such as:

  • On site programming
  • Implementation of aspects of the Hastings Park/PNE Master Plan, and
  • Operational aspects that affect the local community, city or region.

As an advisory group, decision making is outside the scope of the CAG.

The 2017 Community Advisory Group Members are:

Sal Audia
Pasquale Balletta
David Bornman
Patricia Barnes
Steve Canofari
Claire Desmarais
Linda Shuto
Darci Swinton

Applications for the 2018 term will be available in October 2017.
