Who's Running to Represent Edmonton In the 2021 Canadian Federal Election?

By Emil Tiedemann

Canada's 44th federal election will take place on Monday, September 20, 2021 (7:30AM-7:30PM), following Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's call for a snap election on August 15. There are 10 federal ridings in the Edmonton region, for which all 10 incumbents are running for re-election (the deadline for candidates to submit their nomination papers is August 30). 

It's important for everyone to be at least informed about who is running in their riding (you can find out your riding HERE), which is why I wanted to make it as easy as possible for anyone living in the Edmonton area to do just that. Below are all the candidates that are running to represent us as a Member of Parliament (MPs) in Ottawa. Each incumbent will have an asterisk (*) next to their name.

All descriptions/bios of the candidates are copied directly from their own campaign websites or social media pages. Please do your own research on any candidates you want to know more about, as this blog post serves mostly as a starting point for Edmontonians to see who is running and what party they represent.

"Charmaine St. Germain has worn many hats in her life – from heavy equipment operator in the oil fields to retail clerk, office manager, and labour organizer. She understands the challenges facing working people and knows it is hard to get ahead without support, especially when governments keep giving breaks to billionaires while forcing the rest of us to pay the price. 

A proud Métis, devoted auntie, and lifelong Oilers and Elks fan, Charmaine is an active community builder who volunteers with numerous local organizations. Now, she is standing with Jagmeet Singh’s NDP team to fight for our community in Ottawa and help build a fair recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic that benefits everyday working people. 

As a labour organizer, Charmaine’s focus is on creating safe, healthy workplaces and fighting to close the gender-based pay gap. She has seen firsthand the sacrifices working people – especially working women – have made during this pandemic and is committed to fighting for a recovery which benefits them, not the corporations that have already profited too much. 

Charmaine pledges to do everything in her power to make life more affordable for the hard-working people of Edmonton-Manning and their families. She will fight to make prescription drugs, childcare, and housing affordable for all, and champion bold climate action that creates well-paid green jobs, so everyone can thrive."

The results of this upcoming coming election are critical to ensuring we recover successfully from COVID-19 and make progress in building a truly prosperous community for ourselves and future generations. The Conservatives say they want to take Canada back with cuts to services that Canadians rely on. We want to keep building a Canada that is healthier, fairer, and more equal.

First elected in October 2015 and re-elected in October 2019, Michael serves as member of the Standing Committee on Justice and Human Rights. Earlier in the current Parliament, Michael served as the Official Opposition Deputy Shadow Minister for Finance and as a member of the Standing Committee on Finance.

Michael has been a strong advocate for victims and strengthening Canada’s criminal justice system.  Michael sponsored Bill S-217, known as Wynn’s Law, in honour of the late Constable David Wynn who was shot and killed by a career criminal out on bail.  Wynn’s Law would amend the Criminal Code to make it mandatory for the criminal history of bail applicants to be disclosed at bail hearings, something that could have saved the life of Constable Wynn. 

Michael has also worked closely with victims of impaired driving. He has advocated for mandatory sentences for impaired driving offences, and vocally opposed efforts by the Liberal government to water-down sentences for impaired driving and other serious offences."
