For over 9 years, Kyla Painter has been a noteworthy leader at FRAFCA and in the Non-Profit Industry. Kyla is FRAFCA’s Assistant Executive Director as of August 2021, although you may know her from her work as FRAFCA’s Youth Services Program Manager. During her tenure Kyla has helped FRAFCA plan annual fundraisers, build a stellar team of leaders and front-line staff, and provided ongoing commitment to Surrey’s Urban Indigenous Populations. Driven by her commitment to advocate and make change for a better community she takes pride in her abilities to communicate, strategize and lead her teams in a healthy and meaningful way. Kyla is committed to following the Friendship Centre movement in the work she does at FRAFCA. Kyla is thankful to be provided the opportunity to live, work and play on the shared, unceded traditional territory of the Fraser Salish People including the Kwantlen, Katzie, QayQayt, Semiahmoo and Tsawwassen First Nations. When Kyla is not busy with work she enjoys spending time with her husband and two children, exploring our beautiful Province of BC.
