Elizabeth Roth

Elizabeth’s background in political science led her to work for Upstream, an organization dedicated to the pursuit of improved community health and social change. She is a strong advocate of the potential for thoughtful policy decisions to make a positive impact on both the lives of individuals and on the greater community. Prior to pursuing her degree in political science, Elizabeth also trained and worked as a graphic designer.

One of her proudest accomplishments is her work as an organizer and founder of Atangard Community Project, a housing development in Abbotsford B.C. One of the things that drew Elizabeth to Next Up was a desire to have her ideas challenged and tested while connecting with others in the and developing her leadership skills.

She lives in Saskatoon with her husband Tim. Outside of geeking out on Canadian politics, Beth is most often found in or near a kitchen. There are few places she’d rather be than with family and friends around a table.
