Jennifer Johal is a mother of two, an educator and a Delta businesswoman. As a Delta Councillor, Jennifer is committed to being a bridge between community members, business owners and their local government and an advocate for their views on Council. In October 2022, Jennifer became the first person of South Asian descent ever elected to Delta Council in the City’s 143-year history, along with Councillor Jessie Dosanjh.
A former elementary school teacher, Jennifer made the leap into business management when she took over administration of the family business, Raja Trailer, here in Tilbury. She brings a deep understanding of the needs of the local business community. Carving out a place for herself as a woman in a male-dominated industry has been a journey that she is proud to have modeled for her daughter. Jennifer is passionate about diversity and inclusion issues. She believes it is imperative for our decision makers to be representative of the communities they serve.
Jennifer believes in Mayor George Harvie’s vision for a safe, livable and inclusive Delta and is eager to bring her humility, grit and passion for her community to the Achieving for Delta team. She is committed to achieving thriving and revitalized communities in Delta where generations are kept together.
In her free time, when she’s not at her kids’ sports games and activities, Jennifer enjoys spending time with family and friends, playing a round of golf or enjoying an evening at one of her favourite local restaurants.
