Alaina Lockhart proudly serves as the first female Member of Parliament for Fundy Royal. She has spent her adult life dedicated to building a sustainable economy and strengthening the communities that she grew up in and around – from the Bay of Fundy to the rolling Hills of Kings County.
Since being elected in 2015, she has passionately carried out her role by being a strong advocate for her constituents in their dealings with the Government of Canada, vigorously debating and bringing the perspective of Fundy Royal to law making in Ottawa and by being a true champion of the successes and potential of the Atlantic region.
She has served as a member of the Standing Committee on Veterans Affairs, Agriculture and Agri-Foods, and as the Parliamentary Secretary to the Minster of Small Business and Tourism. She currently serves as the Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Tourism, Official Languages, and la Francophonie, where she works with Minister Joly to amplify the economic impacts of the visitor economy, right here at home in Fundy Royal and across Canada.
In 2016, her Private Member’s Motion, M-39: Immigration as a means of Growth in Atlantic Canada, passed unanimously in the House of Commons. This motion was the catalyst for the Government to implement the Atlantic Immigration Pilot which has resulted in 2535 newcomers and their families being approved for permanent residence here in Atlantic Canada and moving the needle on our ageing demographic.
Prior to being elected as Member of Parliament, Alaina was a small business owner and served as a municipal councillor for the Village of Norton, and as a Director of the Royal District Planning Commission. She understands the potential of working together with her municipal and provincial counterparts to deliver on priorities for the region.
Alaina is a UNBSJ Business Administration Alumni and a former small business owner. She and her husband Rick live in Sussex area with their youngest daughter, Lauren.
“Fundy Royal is the jewel of southern New Brunswick. We are rich in resources and our people know how to tackle challenges. As your representative, I don’t want to presume to know what you need; I want to hear it from you. Together we can define the commonalities amongst our diverse communities, from Quispamsis to St. Martins; from Sussex to Hillsborough to create a future that will ensure that our children can enjoy the lifestyle we have worked hard for as New Brunswickers and Canadians – here at home”.Alaina LockhartMember of Parliament for Fundy Royal
