Get to Know Ian Paton

Ian Paton was elected as MLA for Delta South in 2017 and again in 2020. He currently serves as Shadow Minister for Agriculture and Food.

Paton has served as a Member of the Select Standing Committees on Health and Agriculture, Fish and Food.

Elected in 2010 as a councillor in Delta, Ian’s responsibilities have included chairing the Agricultural Advisory Committee and the Dikes and Drainage Committee. In addition to serving as Vice-Chair of other committees, Ian was also the council liaison for the Delta Farmers Institute and the Ladner Business Association. He has also served as a representative on the Metro Vancouver Regional Planning and Agriculture Committee.

Paton graduated with a bachelor’s degree from the University of British Columbia in 1978. A lifelong Delta resident, Paton has more than 30 years of experience running and owning a dairy farm and farm auction business. His wealth of agricultural knowledge has been used to inform municipal, provincial, and federal government studies.

Locally, Paton is the past president of the East Delta Community Hall Society, a past member of the Hall 4 Volunteer Fire Department, and has volunteered with many local organizations, including the Delta Hospital Foundation, REACH Child and Youth Development Society, and the Delta Farmland and Wildlife Trust.

Paton lives on his family farm in Delta with his wife Pam.

“It’s been an honour to represent the constituents in Delta South since 2017, however my work is not yet done. I have witnessed David Eby and the NDP delay the replacement of the George Massey Tunnel, drive up the cost-of-living for families, and limit opportunities for farmers and ranchers to make a decent living. Better is possible under BC United Leader Kevin Falcon and I know together we can fix British Columbia.”
—Ian Paton, BC United Candidate for Delta South

“As a third-generation farmer, Ian is a recognized champion for the agricultural and ranching sector across B.C. In addition, he’ll continue to fight against the NDP’s reckless decriminalizing of hard drugs and restore consequences for criminal behaviour.”
—Kevin Falcon, Leader of BC United
