About Me

PictureHi, my name is Peggy. I’m a journalist based in Vancouver. 

Currently, I’m studying at the UBC Graduate School of Journalism.  I’m also a fellow at the Global Reporting Centre and an associate producer for the CBC’s The Current.

I formerly worked at CBC News television, Global National, CKNW radio, CJSF radio and The Source newspaper.

My mission is to use storytelling to deepen the public conversation about culture and race relations. My latest video project, The Largest Deposit, documents the Alberta oil sands and its impact on the Athabasca Chipewyan First Nations.

I have a BA Honours in human geography from Simon Fraser University, and was the recipient of the Jack Webster Foundation Student Journalism Award in 2015.

In my spare time, you can find me running, hitting up quirky restaurants or tweeting @peggylam_.

I also reside and work on the ancestral territories of the MusqueamSkxwú7mesh & Tsleil-Waututh nations.
