About Mona Fortier

The Honourable Mona Fortier is proud to serve the residents of Ottawa-Vanier by advocating for the community's interests and focusing her efforts on local priorities. She is working to secure federal funds for the housing acceleration fund for the city of Ottawa, financial incentives during this period of rising living costs, the continuation of the Canada Summer Jobs Program, green infrastructure projects, active and public transportation, support for small businesses, tourism, and economic development. She also aims to reduce inequalities, support vulnerable populations, and advance reconciliation with Indigenous peoples, including First Nations, Inuit, and Métis living in the constituency.

Elected and becoming the first woman from the Ottawa-Vanier riding in the House of Commons in April 2017, Mona was re-elected in October 2019 and appointed Minister of Middle Class Prosperity and Associate Minister of Finance. In 2021, she was re-elected for a third term and served as President of the Treasury Board until the end of July 2023. Since January 30, 2024, she has been serving as Deputy Whip for the government.

Mona has always believed that her community service involves taking action. She has extensive experience in areas such as healthcare, education, job creation, and Francophone affairs.

Before being elected, Mona held the position of Senior Director of Communications and Market Development at La Cité College and led her own strategic communication consulting firm. She also served on several non-profit boards, including Montfort Hospital, the Provincial Advisory Committee on Francophone Affairs in Ontario, and the Shaw Centre. Additionally, she received numerous awards for her community leadership, including the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal in 2012.

Mona focuses on making life more affordable for Canadians, protecting the environment, and helping businesses thrive. She also keeps in mind the promotion of linguistic duality and the pursuit of a fair balance between prosperity and social justice.

As a mother of three young adults, a graduate of the University of Ottawa, community leader, and entrepreneur, she understands the importance of coming together by offering a new and ambitious plan to build strong and resilient communities while strengthening the middle class.
