I’m Marc Serré, your Nickel Belt MP and your 2019 federal Liberal candidate for Nickel Belt. Nickel Belt is my hometown. I’ve seen firsthand the incredible accomplishments achieved through collaboration and true community spirit. Over the years I’ve advocated to increase support for the things that matter to you. Together we’ve improved infrastructure, offered more support to our seniors and families, launched a plan to protect our environment, diversified and grew our economy and created a record number of good jobs!
I come from a family of community volunteers whom were dedicated to facilitating progress and growth in their community. My father, former MP for Nickel Belt Gaëtan Serré, began a legacy of public service and inspired me to follow in his footsteps.
Extremely humbled by my team’s successful 2015 campaign, I was eager to get to work. In Ottawa I joined several committees such as the Standing Committee on the Status of Women and the Standing Committee on Natural Resources. In April 2017, I was chosen as Chair of the National Rural Caucus and held the position until I was appointment as Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Rural Economic Development. I co-chaired the All-Party ALS committee and was past chair of the Northern Ontario Liberal Caucus and of the Liberal Senior’s Caucus. I’m also proud to be the current co-chair of the Indigenous caucus.
Passed in the House of Commons, my motion M-106 called on the federal government to develop Canada’s first National Seniors Strategy and prompted the creation of a Ministry dedicated to seniors.
Representing you has been a great honour and many successes have been realized this past mandate but there is more work to do. My dedication to Nickel Belt is unwavering; I am running for re-election to continue to work hard for you, to build our communities, to find solutions to your concerns and to keep focus on your priorities. Let’s strive for a united, positive and prosperous future for our families, our youth, and our seniors and build upon what makes Nickel Belt – Greater Sudbury a wonderful place to live, play and work. I’m Marc Serré and I will always work hard for you!
