Jonas Pinzon Osorio


As the Program Coordinator of Moving in a Livable Region (MLR), I help coordinate, design, and implement a wide array of projects, from coordinating civic literacy campaigns with different stakeholders to facilitating in-community dialogues on mobility pricing across Metro Vancouver. How can we make mobility across Metro Vancouver more efficient, inclusive, and sustainable? And, who are we building Canadian cities for? These questions and my interest in doing collaborative work relevant to communities animate my work with the Moving in a Livable Region team. 

I hold a Master’s Degree in Geography from the University of British Columbia (UBC) and studied Human Ecology on an island in Maine. As an urban geographer, I am interested in researching the ways public policy structures the (im)mobilities of communities in urban and rural environments. Besides my work with MLR, I enjoy reading books on political ecology and feminist theory, especially as it pertains to the construction of power and space. I also enjoy cycling and running in the mountains of British Columbia.
