Meet Your MP

Diane-Finley.jpgDiane Finley was first elected to Parliament in 2004 and re-elected in 2006, 2008, 2011 and 2015.


Diane passionately represents the beautiful riding of Haldimand-Norfolk, home to over 150 kilometers of Lake Erie shorelines, the historic Grand River, Canada’s most agriculturally diverse farmland, and some of the friendliest, hardworking and generous people in all of Canada.


In August 2017, Andrew Scheer, the new Conservative Party Leader, asked Diane to continue in her position of Caucus-Party Liaison in preparation for the 2019 Election.

From 2006 to 2015, she served in Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s Cabinet as Minister of Human Resources & Skills Development, Minister Responsible for CMHC, Minister of Citizenship & Immigration, Minister of Public Works & Government Services, and also as Canada’s Receiver General. Additionally, Diane served as The Regional Minister for Southwestern Ontario (the Prime Minister’s lieutenant) from 2008 to 2015.


Following the 2015 General Election, Diane was named the official Liaison between the Caucus and the Conservative Party, and was also appointed Deputy Shadow Minister for Innovation, Science, and Economic Development. In April 2016, she was named Shadow Minister for this portfolio.
