Peter Mortifee

The Somerset Foundation

Vancouver, BC

Ashoka rocks. It has opened doors which have created opportunities which I previously could not have imagined. The Ashoka community inspires me to learn, grow and expand my own ideas of what’s possible.

Dr. Mortifee co-founded the Somerset Foundation and has been it’s Chair since its inception in 2001. The foundation’s mission is to “Support Social Innovation and Wellbeing”. He practiced as a specialist physician through an academic position at the University of British Columbia before retiring from medicine and embarking on a new vocational direction. Peter seeks to generatively engage with and support people and initiatives that strive to create meaningful, sustainable, personal and collective change.
