Get to Know Stephen Johnston

Stephen Johnston grew up in West Kelowna and has always called the riding home. As a devoted husband to Leah, his high school sweetheart, and a proud father to two incredible teenagers, Stephen’s commitment to family is evident in both his personal and professional life.

Currently serving as a City Councillor in West Kelowna, Stephen was elected in 2018 and re-elected in 2022. In addition, he has been a Director for the Regional District of the Central Okanagan since 2018, showcasing his enduring dedication to local governance. As a Councillor, Stephen has played a pivotal role in delivering critical pieces of infrastructure and planning to the community. Notable accomplishments include the new Rose Valley Water Treatment plant, West Kelowna’s first City Hall, a new Community Vision document (OurWK), and a brand-new Official Community Plan designed to pave the way for West Kelowna’s prosperous and sustainable future. His influence extends to various infrastructure and road improvements, community safety initiatives, and advocacy for critical projects like a second power transmission line, highway intersection enhancements, and supportive housing.

As a Red Seal Journeyman Carpenter and one currently working in sales and business development within the construction industry, Stephen brings a unique understanding of housing challenges and the importance of affordable home creation.

Outside of work, Stephen finds joy in spending quality time with his family, relishing the outdoor wonders of the Central Okanagan—be it the beaches, mountains, or any of the region’s breathtaking landscapes. He also loves baseball, whether coaching, playing, or simply cheering from the sidelines. 

“I’m excited to join Kevin Falcon and the BC United team in continuing the exceptional representation that BC United MLA Ben Stewart has provided for 14 years. Our communities deserve strong representation and I am committed to working tirelessly to ensure my community and future generations have the best access to things like housing, health care, education, and public safety. I look forward to working with Kevin Falcon and the BC United team to help shape a prosperous future for our province.”
