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.

As the Member of Parliament for Lethbridge, Rachael is committed to putting people first. Every year, she attends more than 200 events throughout the riding, tours dozens of local businesses and organizations, and meets one-on-one with hundreds of constituents. Empowered by the stories people share with her, Rachael is able to put a human face to government policies when she speaks in the House of Commons.

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.

Before entering public life, Rachael earned a strong reputation for building community and empowering others.
