Marco Mendicino

Hello Eglinton-Lawrence!

I hope that everyone enjoyed their time spent with family over the Family Day long weekend. 

After several weeks in Ottawa, this week I’m back in the riding and I look forward to reconnecting with all of you.

This Saturday, February 24th from 2-4pm I will be hosting my 3rd Annual Community Skate at the Otter Creek Rink. Be sure to bring your skates and helmets for an afternoon full of family fun.

For too long, Canada’s Indigenous peoples have had to fight for to have their constitutional rights recognized. This is why, on February 15th, Prime Minister Trudeau announced that the Government of Canada will embark on a Recognition and Implementation of Rights Framework in full partnership with First Nations, Inuit and Métis Peoples.

On February 8th, Minister McKenna unveiled Canada’s new rules for the review of major projects. These new rules will protect our environment, fish and waterways, rebuild public trust, and create new jobs and economic opportunities for the middle class

Minister Leblanc announced new, strengthened regulations to protect Canada’s marine life and fish habitats on February 6th

Safe and secure housing is a right, not a privilege. On November 22nd, The Prime Minister recognized this in Lawrence Heights as the Government unveiled its groundbreaking National Housing Strategy which will address a range of housing needs, from shelters and community housing, to affordable rental and homeownership.

As always, my constituency office is open and here to help! Feel free to drop by, Monday-Friday from 10am-4pm.
