About Anjali

Climate action. Housing for all. A strong social safety net. 

These are the pillars of what Anjali will bring to Ottawa. 

Anjali Appadurai is a seasoned advocate for environmental, social and economic justice. She’s also a musician and a staunch believer in people power. After years of advocacy at UN climate conferences, with West Coast Environmental Law, the Sierra Club BC, the Padma Centre for Climate Justice and the Climate Emergency Unit, Anjali is stepping up and running to be the leader we need - representing the NDP in the swing riding of Vancouver-Granville.

She is passionate about exposing the interconnections of our failing systems – spiralling poverty, food insecurity, systemic racism, inadequate healthcare, the overdose crisis, the climate emergency. And she’s ready to fight for our communities and challenge decision makers to do what’s right. 

Addressing the climate crisis

For too many years, politicians have failed to act on climate change. Under Trudeau, Canada’s climate pollution has actually increased over the last 6 years – and the Liberals are still building new oil pipelines. 

At this pivotal moment, we need powerful leaders like Anjali Appadurai who can be trusted to treat climate change like the emergency that it is. 

With heat waves, 1000-year droughts, out of control wildfires, and unprecedented flooding becoming the new norm, there’s no time left to waste. It’s time for a Green New Deal for all. 

Anjali has a plan to tackle the climate crisis without leaving anyone behind. Anjali and the NDP are ready to redirect $18 billion in oil and gas subsidies into hundreds of thousands of good low-carbon jobs, reliable and free transit, zero-emissions housing, and other crucial investments.

Fighting for your right to a home.

Housing is a human right and homes are for living in.

As a longtime Vancouver renter, Anjali Appadurai has seen the dramatic impacts of the housing crisis firsthand. Under the Liberal government, rents have spiralled out of control and home ownership has become an impossible dream for so many people.  

Together with Jagmeet Singh and the NDP, Anjali has a plan to fix Trudeau’s housing crisis, curb speculation and build 500,000 affordable homes. As a seasoned advocate for social justice, Anjali is passionate about building a strong safety net, including safe and affordable housing for all.
