Ed Levy

Ed first became deeply impressed with Pivot when he attended an event at Hollyhock in the early 2000s. In addition to previously serving on the Pivot Foundation Board and working with a family foundation, ILLAHIE, since 2000 he has served on a number of boards including BC Civil Liberties Association, Tides Canada, Lawyer’s Rights Watch (Canada), Neal Squire Society, Oncolytics Biotech, WelTel, and Lund Harbour Board.

Prior to retiring in 2002, Ed taught philosophy of science at UBC and then joined the biotechnology company, QLT, which developed the first medical treatment for macular degeneration, an eye condition that is one of the leading causes of blindness. Ed and his wife Julia divide their time between Vancouver and Lund, BC.
