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.

In August 2017 Rachael was appointed by the Leader of the Official Opposition, Andrew Scheer, to serve as the Shadow Minister for Status of Women. In this role, she holds Prime Minister Trudeau accountable for his actions, uses her voice to stand up for victims of violence, and advocates for the economic empowerment of women. 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.

Before entering public life, Rachael earned a strong reputation for building community and empowering others. Working as a youth sociologist and leadership consultant, her work took her across Canada and gave her the opportunity to work with business and not-for-profit leaders, universities, colleges, and young world-changers.

Being raised on a small farm in southern Alberta instilled a strong work ethic and resourcefulness that is inherent in everything Rachael does.
