Rachael Harder

Meet The Candidate

As a dedicated listener and skilled advocate, Rachael has served as a strong voice for the Lethbridge riding since being elected in 2015.

Rachael formerly served as the Shadow Minister for Youth and Persons with Disabilities.

Rachael was elected by her colleagues to be on the Executive Committee for the Canada-Europe Parliamentary Association and serves as a delegate to the Parliamentary Assembly in the Council of Europe where she represents Canada in discussions on human rights, democracy and the rule of law.
