Constituency offices are a relatively new phenomenon in Canadian history. The first two are credited to Ed Broadbent (1968), and Flora MacDonald (1973) right here in Kingston and the Islands. 

My dedicated office staff and I are here to help constituents have access to their federal government programs, services and representatives.

Working from the Kingston Constituency Office

Although most weekdays are spent in Ottawa, I am generally able to return to Kingston on Fridays to work from my consitituency office. Additionally, when the House of Commons is not sitting, I spend some weeks working in Kingston. During this time, I am able to attend to more immediate constituent needs. Here is a list of the types of I work I do from my constituency office on behalf of the people of Kingston and the Islands:

 

  • Meet with constituents, groups, and businesses
  • Attend functions in the community, such as ceremonies, announcements, parades, and dinners so that I can keep in touch with community members and their needs and concerns
  • Write letters and emails to constituents as well as return phone calls
  • Interview with local media and organizations about current federal issues
  • Hold community wide meetings, townhalls, and/or roundtables
  • Visit local businesses and organizations to assess their federal needs and concerns
  • Meet with representatives of other levels of government to help make all government services run smoothly

 

My staff and I hope that you will feel very welcome to visit the office. Moreover, you may note that we often have community artwork on display. We are proud to feature these artists' work and thank the artists for their contribution.
