Kanata⁠—Carleton NDP

Image of Melissa Coenraad

The Kanata-Carleton NDP is pleased to announce that Melissa Coenraad is our candidate in the upcoming Ontario provincial election on June 2nd.

Melissa is a public health services professional and labour leader who has fought for better health services for everyone in Kanata–Carleton.

Throughout the pandemic Melissa has worked tirelessly as a lab technician to help analyze COVID tests and made sure everyone got the lifesaving care they needed. Serving as President of OPSEU Local 475, representing workers at 18 hospital labs across Eastern Ontario, Melissa has seen first-hand how successive Liberal and Conservative governments have made deep cuts to our health care system. She has fought against privatization to ensure every family has access to quality care.

Melissa will stand up and make sure the provincial government invests in public health services so everyone can access vision care, dental care, and their prescription medication – with their health card, not their credit card. She understands that our loved ones in long-term care were some of the most vulnerable during the pandemic and she’ll fight to keep seniors, and individuals in care, safe by taking profit out of Canada’s long-term care system.

Melissa has been an active volunteer helping people in Kanata–Carleton and around the world. In 2017, she worked in orphanages in Africa to help provide care to vulnerable children and has been an active supporter of local community organizations in Kanata–Carleton. Melissa is a proud mother and is fighting for the next generation. She knows she can help build a more compassionate community that works for everyday people as your Member of Provincial Parliament in Kanata–Carleton.


Strong. Ready. Working for you.
