About Us Our Team


Alexandra Cunningham headshotAlexandra Cunningham

Vice President
Alexandra Cunningham is a wife, mother, student, and the Vice-President of the Joy Smith Foundation. Her passion lies with her family and her desire to help others, which is why her work to help prevent human trafficking through the Joy Smith Foundation has been so rewarding over the past five years. Completing both her BSc (Hons) and BA was the beginning of her academic pursuits. As she works towards her Masters of Psychology, her aspirations to one day work with emergency service providers, first responders, and those struggling with PTSD as a clinical psychologist holds great importance in her heart. Growing up, she witnessed firsthand her brother, Edward, actively working in the field to combat human trafficking, and then her mother, Joy, compelled to make a difference by passing anti-human trafficking laws as a Member of Parliament and then starting her own Foundation. This truly inspired and influenced Alexandra as she chose her career path. Her passion for the issue, coupled with her great admiration for the tremendous work both her brother and mother have done to raise awareness and combat human trafficking here in Canada, is why she felt the need to become a member of the Joy Smith Foundation team.
