Lisa MacLeod was first elected to the Ontario Legislature in a 2006 by-election as the youngest MPP in that parliament and the youngest conservative woman to be elected in Ontario – either federally or provincially.
She represented the Nepean-Carleton riding (now Nepean) winning elections in 2007, 2011, and 2014, and has continued to represent the constituents of Nepean since the boundaries were changed in the 2018 provincial election.
Lisa has served as the Vice Chair of the Quebec-Ontario Parliamentary Friendship Committee, Ontario’s steering committee member on the Canadian Parliamentary Women’s Association and Vice Chair of the Government Agencies Committee and Legislative Assembly Committees. She has also served as Official Opposition Energy Critic, Education Critic, Revenue and Accountability Critic, Government and Consumer Affairs critic and Critic for Children and Youth.
Lisa’s legislative success includes Rowan’s Law, Canada’s first concussion legislation, Lebanese Heritage Month and Trans Remembrance Month. As well, Lisa has been successful in receiving all party support for making Queen’s Park Family Friendly, defending Ontario’s horseracing industry and a compassionate and catastrophic care Motion.
For her work Lisa has been awarded the Friendship Medal by the Royal Canadian Legion, a commendation by the St. John’s Ambulance and is the 2018 EVE Award Recipient from Equal Voice- for her work with Daughters of the Vote and liveable legislatures. Lisa was also named Top 50 and Top 25 in the Capital and in 2017 was named Faces Magazine’s Favourite Ottawa MPP.
