Peter Argast, Board President

Peter was born and raised on Vancouver Island. He moved out east to attend university in Ottawa, where he obtained a degree in Political Science.


After traveling and a stint living in Quebec, Peter returned to the west coast. He completed a Masters' of Public Administration in 2014 and currently works for the Office of the Auditor General of British Columbia.





As a public policy professional, Peter has experience in the public sector at the federal, provincial and non-profit levels. He joined the board of directors of Saanich Volunteer Services in 2016. Peter is passionate about his west coast home and giving back to his community. When not exploring the back roads and hills of the Island as an avid cyclist and hiker, Peter can be found in the kitchen cooking up a storm or planning his next adventure.
