British Columbia’s new Lieutenant Governor, Judith Guichon, will visit Clearwater on Monday morning, Jan. 28.

A letter from a member of Guichon’s staff to Mayor John Harwood was released during last Tuesday’s town council meeting.

Details of the Lieutenant Governor’s itinerary have not yet been finalized.

The Nicola Valley rancher was sworn in as Lieutenant Governor on Nov. 2 of last year.

The Guichon family has ranched in the Nicola Valley since 1878. Along with her late husband, commercial pilot Lawrence Guichon, she introduced holistic management to the ranchers of British Columbia.

She served on the local hospital board and the community Heath Council and was on the Community Health Foundation board. Prior to this, she served as a 4-H leader and started a recycling society in Merritt. She has served as a director of the Fraser Basin Council, director of the Grasslands Conservation Council, member of the Nicola Valley Water Use Management planning committee, and played the flute in the Nicola Valley Community Band.

Prior to her term as Lieutenant Governor she served on the Provincial Task Force on Species at Risk and completed a two-year term as the president of the BC Cattlemen’s Association. She has also been a part of the Ranching Task Force for B.C. and the BC Agri-Food Trade Advisory Council.


Born in Montreal, Guichon moved to British Columbia in 1972. She and her husband, Bruno Mailloux, maintain a residence in the Nicola Valley.
