Jason Kenney

Jason Kenney

Leadership Candidate

Alberta Progressive Conservative Party

Jason committed himself to public life as President of the Canadian Taxpayers Federation, where he fought hard for lower taxes and fiscal responsibility.

In 1997, Calgary voters elected him to Parliament where he worked to unite conservatives nationally. Since then, he’s been voted the “best overall,” “hardest working,” and “most knowledgeable” MP by his colleagues. Jason was called “perhaps Canada’s best immigration minister ever” by the National Post, and also led Canada’s two largest ministries: Employment and Social Development, and National Defence. At Employment and Social Development, Jason successfully negotiated the new Canada Job Grant program with the provinces - a feat critics said was unlikely.

As Multiculturalism Minister, he helped to double the Conservative Party’s support amongst new Canadians.

Jason is now working to unite Albertans so we can get our province back on track and restore the Alberta Advantage.
