Raymond Fung, Founding Member & Director


Raymond Fung

Ray Fung had a longstanding role in local government.  Prior to retirement, he was the Director of Engineering & Transportation with the District of West Vancouver, a position he held for 12 years.

Ray is a founding member of The Partnership. He previously chaired two of the Partnership’s original incarnations, namely: the Water Sustainability Committee of the BCWWA (2003-2008) and the BC Green Infrastructure Partnership (2008-2011).

Reflecting on the 10 year anniversary of the Partnership, Ray stated, “Water sustainability remains a key challenge related to climate change.  While the Partnership has accomplished much, this imperative has the potential to inspire many more actions in the years ahead.”

Career Highlights

In 2003, Ray Fung was one of the architects of the Water Sustainability Action Plan for British Columbia. He created the graphic that illustrates the “BC process” for moving from awareness to action in order to achieve water sustainability.

“All of us have attended workshops, seminars and conferences where we simply sit and listen all day. And at the end of the day, we go back to our offices and we carry on doing what we were doing,” stated Ray Fung in 2007.

“When we convene for action in a forum such as the Showcasing Green Infrastructure Innovation Series, however, it is not just for the sake of listening. Rather, when we leave the forum  we want to use what we have learned so that we can take action and make a difference in our professional lives. That difference is to change the way we develop land.”
