Andrew Lewis is a Deputy Leader of the Green Party of Canada and a prominent member of the Green Party of British Columbia.

He is a 41-year-old landscaper who came from the United Kingdom to Vancouver Island in the early 1990s.

He first became nationally visible in the 2001 British Columbia provincial election, winning 25% of the vote in BC's largest riding, Saanich North and the Islands. He won the most Green votes of any riding, and second-strongest percentage showing to Adriane Carr on the Sunshine Coast. The party as a whole polled 12.4% across BC.

In the 2004 federal election, Lewis ran again in a substantially larger federal riding of Saanich—Gulf Islands and won 16.7% of the vote and also posted the first victory in a polling division ever for his federal party and in fact won 17 of 238 polls. The party as a whole polled 4.3% across Canada.

Lewis achieved some visibility in the major media which was intrigued by the story of a Green running to win.

He didn't run in the 2005 provincial election due to a "nomination freeze" imposed by the Green Party of BC, and an illness in the family. He ran again in Saanich—Gulf Islands in the 2006 federal election but lost one-third of his 2004 vote share winning only 9.9% of the ballots cast.
