Biography – Monte McNaughton
Monte McNaughton, Monte McNaughton, MPP for Lambton-Kent-Middlesex, and Minister of Labour, Training and Skills Development for the Province of Ontario, Canada, is a life-long conservative and community leader. He has served three consecutive terms as a Member of Provincial Parliament. Growing up in Newbury, in rural Southwestern Ontario, McNaughton learned the value of hard work and community service by working in his family business. Before entering politics, Monte, his brother, and his father owned and operated the McNaughton family shopping centre in Newbury, Ontario.
McNaughton was inspired to pursue public service at a young age by his grandfather, Jack McNaughton, who as long-serving Reeve, successfully advocated for the construction of a local hospital.
By the time McNaughton was twenty, he had been elected as Newbury Councillor. He was subsequently re-elected two more times.
He graduated from Westervelt Business College and successfully completed executive programs at the Richard Ivey School of Business at Western University. From 2009 to 2010, he served as President of the Strathroy and District Chamber of Commerce.
McNaughton was sworn in as Ontario’s Minister of Infrastructure in June 2018. As Minister, he embarked on an ambitious market consultation, introduced legislation aimed at expanding natural gas into rural parts of the province, promoted the expansion of broadband into rural Ontario, and announced an investment to renovate and expand Massy Hall, Canada’s oldest concert hall.
In June 2019, McNaughton was assigned a new role: Minister of Labour. In his first few months on the job, McNaughton has met with over 100 labour leaders and is excited to work toward making Ontario the safest workplace in Canada.
McNaughton and his wife Kate have a daughter, Annie, and live in Mt. Brydges, Ontario.
We look forward to seeing you at this event On November 14th.
