Bill Cunningham was born in 1969 in Edmonton, Alberta. He moved to Burnaby in 1993 to study business at Simon Fraser University. In 1995, he earned his MBA and decided to make Burnaby his home.
Since 1995, Mr. Cunningham has worked at the Toronto Dominion Bank, first as a Manager of the Technology Banking Group and the Independent Business Group then as a Client Relationship Manager. This has allowed him a unique opportunity to meet with Burnaby residents and business operators from all walks of life and to hear their concerns.
Mr. Cunningham has always found the time to give back to the community. For the last six years, he has been a volunteer business teacher for a program called Junior Achievement at Alpha Secondary School.
He is also committed to protecting the natural beauty of Burnaby and participates in the Beecher Creek Enhancement Project and numerous other drives aimed at preserving Burnabyís natural beauty.
Mr. Cunningham first joined the Liberal Party of Canada in 1987 to support Paul Martinís vision for Canada in his first leadership contest. Currently, he serves as President of the Liberal Party of Canada in BC.
When he is not working or volunteering in the community, he is an avid sports fan. As a member of the BC Lionbackers and long-time BC Lions season ticket holder, there are few things that he enjoys more than catching a game at BC Place. He also enjoys golfing, skiing and traveling.
