The Honourable Daniel Vandal was first elected as Member of Parliament for Saint Boniface—Saint Vital in 2015 and re-elected in 2019 and 2021. In 2018, he was appointed Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Indigenous Services and on November 20, 2019, he was named Minister of Northern Affairs. Following the last election, the Prime Minister entrusted Minister Vandal with the additional responsibilities as Minister Responsible for Prairies Economic Development Agency Canada and Minister Responsible for the Canadian Northern Economic Development Agency.
Prior to his political career, Minister Vandal was a youth outreach worker with Ma Mawi Wi Chi Itata Centre. He then went on to serve five terms as Winnipeg City Councillor for St. Boniface. A former Deputy Mayor, he was also Chair of the Protection, Property and Public Works committees at City Hall. He is especially proud of his role in the development of Winnipeg’s Aboriginal Youth Strategy, the first of its kind in Canada.
As Minister of Northern Affairs, he has worked with provincial, territorial, and Indigenous partners in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, ensuring people were healthy and safe and that businesses and communities had the necessary resources to get through this challenging period.
