A fifth-generation farmer and entrepreneur, Alicia Guichon comes from a long line of Ladner farmers. The lineage continues, as she welcomed her first child in 2020 with husband Jeff. Born and raised in Ladner, Alicia continues to call Ladner home with her young family and rescue dogs, Gracie and Lilly.
Alicia is passionate about the preservation of agricultural land and keeping farming viable as a local industry in Delta. A strong advocate for the agricultural community, Alicia serves as the Chair of the City of Delta’s Agricultural Advisory Committee and on the Board of the Delta Farmer’s Institute. Since 2018, Alicia Guichon has served on Delta Council.
Alicia is deeply embedded in the Delta community. She opened Backroads Family Farm Market with her sister in 2014, where they sell seasonal local produce and pride themselves on connecting the community with where their food comes from. Delta’s heritage is important to Alicia and her family, in fact, the Port Guichon neighbourhood and school were named after her family.
You’re likely to run into Alicia at the Ladner Village Market selling produce, at community events or while she’s out volunteering in the community. Being a farmer and small business owner allows Alicia to connect with the community on an everyday basis and she sees her role as a Councillor as a natural extension of this. Alicia is looking forward to continuing to be a voice for everyday people on Council and foster a family-friendly community for the next generation of Delta families.
