In 2010, Kevin Lamoureux was elected Member of Parliament for Winnipeg North. Born in Winnipeg, he attended high school in both Manitoba and Saskatchewan and in 1982, signed up for service with the Canadian Forces, where he served for three years. After leaving the military, Mr. Lamoureux attended the University of Winnipeg part time while working at the Bay and Caprice Distributors.
In 1988, Mr. Lamoureux was elected for the first time to serve as Member of the Legislative Assembly (MLA) of Manitoba and was re-elected in 1990, 1995, 2003, and 2007.
During his time as MLA, Mr. Lamoureux championed such important issues as immigration, justice, labour, finance, education and housing. In his constituency office, he and his volunteers welcomed hundreds of people each month, in particular for assistance in navigating the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP). In fact, Mr. Lamoureux was the first MLA to speak in the Legislature about establishing the MPNP, which has to date welcomed so many new Canadians to Manitoba.
Mr. Lamoureux is currently the Parliamentary Secretary to the Leader of the Government in the House of Commons.
