Sam Sullivan, CM (born 1959) is a former mayor of Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. The extremely athletic Sullivan became paralyzed after he broke his neck in a skiing accident at the age of 19. After a seven year struggle with depression, he successfully completed a Bachelor of Business Administration degree at Simon Fraser University. Sullivan later founded six non-profit organizations dedicated to improving the quality of life for disabled people in North America. Sullivan suffered a fracture dislocation of his fourth and fifth cervical vertebra. The result is he is almost completely paralyzed with no use of his fingers or triceps, but with some use of shoulders biceps and wrists. Sullivan can write notes, use the telephone pressing buttons with his knuckle, and drive specially outfitted vehicles. Sullivan is also known for his advocacy on behalf of the physically disabled. In 2005, Sullivan was invested as a member of the Order of Canada by Governor General Adrienne Clarkson. Sullivan was inducted into the Terry Fox Hall of Fame in 2000, and the Peter F. Drucker Award for Innovation.
After being involved in creating non-profit societies and volunteering for non-profit initiatives, Sam met a number of people involved in politics. Former BC provincial cabinet minister Grace McCarthy suggested that Sam consider running for council.
Sullivan was first elected to Vancouver City Council in 1993 as a member of the Non-Partisan Association (NPA). Sullivan served for 15 years total on Vancouver city council. He served as mayor from 2005-2008, promoting the Paralympic Games, urban planning and civic strategy, environmentalism, and drug addiction treatment.
