A Strong Voice For Northern Ontario

Greg Rickford was born on September 24, 1967 in Paris, Ontario.

Instilled with the values of hard work and public service from a young age, Greg has earned degrees in common and civil law from McGill University, and an MBA from Laval University.

Those values brought Greg to the remote First Nations communities of Northern Ontario were he worked as a nurse and lawyer.

Greg’s experience lead him to understand the large and remote riding of Kenora needed a strong voice in Parliament or face being further isolated.

Running in his very first election, Greg made improving economic and infrastructure conditions for First Nations in the area one of his central campaign themes.

Greg was the first Conservative MP ever elected in the 84-year history of the Kenora riding winning by just over 2000 votes against the incumbent Member of Parliament.

A Strong Voice in the House of Commons

During his first term, Greg served as a member of the House of Commons Standing Committees on Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development, and Access to Information, Privacy and Ethics.

Greg was also elected by colleagues from all parties to chair the All Party Tourism Caucus for the 40th Parliament.

Recognizing Greg’s leadership and strong voice for Northern Ontario, Prime Minister Stephen Harper appointed Greg to become Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of State for Official Languages On August 30, 2010.

Just six months later the Prime Minister made Greg the Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Indian Affairs and Northern Development.

Greg Rickford Re-Elected

On May 2nd, 2011, Greg asked voters in the federal riding of Kenora if they would re-elect him to be their strong voice in Ottawa.

The voters showed their confidence in Greg and increased his vote by 20%.

The Prime Minister shares their confidence, re-appointing Greg as theParliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development, while also appointing Greg as the Parliamentary Secretary for theCanadian Northern Economic Development Agency (CanNor), and for theFederal Economic Development Initiative for Northern Ontario (FedNor).

This means Greg is currently the Parliamentary Secretary to Ministers’ Aglukkaq, Clement, and Duncan.
