Deputy Leader of the Conservative Party

The Honourable Lisa Raitt

The Hon. Lisa Raitt, MP for Halton, was first elected to the House of Commons in 2008, and was re-elected in 2011.

In July 2013, Ms. Raitt was appointed Minister of Transport, having to almost immediately deal with the tragic train derailment at Lac-Megantic, Que., quickly laying down measures to not only help with the trauma and devastation the community faced, but to impose stiff temporary rail restrictions and then pushing successfully for tougher tank-car standards while the Transportation Safety Board carried out its arm’s-length investigation.

Previous to the Transport portfolio, she was appointed Minister of Natural Resources in October 2008 and Minister of Labour in January 2010.

Prior to her election, Ms. Raitt was President and Chief Executive Officer of the Toronto Port Authority (TPA), where she had previously held the important positions of general counsel and harbourmaster.

As a lawyer, Ms. Raitt specialized in the areas of intellectual property, commercial litigation and commercial shipping.

Ms. Raitt is an engaged member of her community where her sons, J.C. and Billy, are actively involved in hockey, soccer and football. She continues to work closely with the Mental Health Commission of Canada to break down the stigma surrounding mental illness. In 2002, Ms. Raitt was invited to become a member of the Canadian chapter of the worldwide Young Presidents’ Organization.

She was raised by her grandparents as the youngest of seven children in Whitney Pier, Cape Breton, where her grandfather was a union executive after having worked as a “scalesman” at the International Coal Pier.

A graduate of St. Francis Xavier University in Nova Scotia, Ms. Raitt also holds a Master of Science degree in chemistry from the University of Guelph, and later earned her law degree at Osgoode Hall.

She resides with her boys in Moffat, Ontario.
