MPP Report ~ January 2020 Issue 

This January I have been enjoying being at home, meeting and talking with constituents. With the Ontario Legislature recessed it has allowed me to do more with residents and groups in Kanata and West Carleton. One important meeting I hosted was the Community Volunteer Roundtable Discussion, which you can read about below. Although I am unable to cover all my monthly activities in this MPP Report, I do hope you get an idea of the variety of events taking place throughout our Kanata-Carleton community.
I want to take this opportunity to mention that if I can assist with your provincial government needs, please contact my staff at the Community Office. Do you need help with your health card, driver’s licence, Ontario photo card, birth certificate, name changes, or marriage certificate? Would someone you know like to receive a birthday, milestone anniversary, or congratulatory certificate? Would you like for me to attend a community event or meeting? Contact my office (phone and email below). We are pleased to serve you.

Stay in touch,

On Friday, January 24th I was pleased to host a Community Volunteer Roundtable Discussion with community groups and organizations from Kanata and West Carleton - as well as The Ottawa Mission and Salvation Army that serve the greater Ottawa region. (See photo above and below.)
The roundtable was to prompt conversations about strengthening the culture of volunteerism in our community – how to get more residents involved and how to create a stronger network of people and organizations that can share ideas relating to volunteerism. I want to thank the many organizations that took part in the roundtable, and those that have shown an interest in raising greater awareness about our community's volunteer opportunities.  
Each week I profile a different volunteer organization. To start 2020 I was pleased to feature the Bruyere health facilities as well as the Kanata Seniors Council. You can read more about how to volunteer and donate to some of the wonderful organizations in our community on my webpage: Volunteer in Kanata-Carleton.
I was very pleased to visit the Dave Smith Youth Treatment Centre and to hear about the important and inspiring programs helping so many youth in our City. 
I continue to be busy visiting seniors' residents and long-term care facilities. The Government is focused on providing caring surroundings for Ontario seniors who are in need of nursing and personal care and can no longer remain at home. Learn more about Ontario's Ministry of Long-Term Care
243,000 new Ontario jobs in 2019 -- the Ontario Minister of Economic Development, Job Creation and Trade recently reported that 76 percent of net new jobs in Canada last year were created in Ontario. The Provincial Government is implementing an economic plan to attract investment, encourage innovation, and grow small businesses. It is creating a business-friendly environment through lowering taxes and other costs, and reducing the burden of red tape. Read more here

On a cold Friday night a few weeks ago it was a pleasure to visit the Kanata Legion Branch. I had a delicious fish & chips dinner and caught up with friends, neighbours and the Legion's volunteers.

Contact my office if you wish for me to participate in a community event. I would love to attend if I can work it into my schedule. 

It’s always inspiring to meet and support young people who are taking a keen interest in the world around them and who want to be good stewards of the environment. Congratulations to this wonderful constituent who is working on her Brownie badges. Well done!

I was grateful through the holiday season to celebrate the spirit of giving with the people who help make the Salvation Army the caring organization it is. Here I am pictured with Craig Dunbar and Glen Van Gulik. 

On Saturday January 4th, I hosted a MPP New Year's Levee to cheer in 2020. Residents met at the Kanata Legion to share stories of their holidays and to talk about the months ahead (photos above and below). Click here to see more photos of the levee
