Working from the Kingston Constituency Office

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 access their federal government programs, services and representatives.

Most of my weekdays are spent in Ottawa for the duration of the House of Commons 135 sitting days a year, but when the House of Commons is not sitting I spend my time working from the Constituency Office 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, town halls, 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
  • Plan and tape Cogeco’s "LOCAL View with Ted Hsu" with local organisations and groups 

My staff and I hope that you 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.  All of these special art pieces are for sale directly through the artists.
