Geoff Urton

Senior Manager, Stakeholder Relations

As the BC SPCA’s Senior Manager of Stakeholder Relations, Geoff puts his background in Animal Welfare Science (UBC) and Dialogue and Negotiation (SFU) to work advancing public policy initiatives across Canada. His advocacy and outreach team works with other stakeholders at the local, provincial and federal levels to advance animal welfare standards through a collaborative approach.

Geoff's team has successfully advocated for a national phase-out of confining sow stalls in the pig industry, mandatory pain relief for cattle, and municipal bylaws that restrict backyard chaining of dogs. They are now turning their focus to BC's devastating homeless cat crisis.
