Paul Calandra

For Paul, political life has been more than a career – it has been a passion and a calling. Paul was elected in 2008 as Member of Parliament for Oak Ridges-Markham and has proudly represented the residents of Markham, Stouffville, King, and Richmond Hill. Paul also serves at Parliamentary Secretary to the Prime Minister and for Intergovernmental Affairs.

Since he was elected, Paul has always made his constituents his first priority. He has used the resources of his office to give back to the community. One of the projects he has worked on locally is Hockey Night in Stouffville which is in its fifth year and has raised well over $300,000 for Markham-Stouffville Hospital and other local charities.

Paul has always been a promoter of local heritage and history which is why in 2011 he organized a massive military celebration with our local Canadian Army regiment, the Governor General’s Horse Guards. In 2014, Paul’s office honoured local veteran’s who gave their lives for our country by hanging commemorative banners on Main Street in Stouffville and Main Street Markham.

In 2007, even before he was elected Paul made the commitment to work with local farmers on the federal airport lands in east Markham to ensure their land was protected from the development of an airport or reforestation by radical environmentalists. This year that promise was fulfilled when over 10,000 acres of federal lands were incorporated into the Rouge National Urban Park, the first park of its kind. This move protects this valuable farmland and will respect the work of farmers forever, in perpetuity.

Paul has always called Markham and Stouffville home. As a child, he grew up in Markham and spent the summers on the family farm in Ballantrae. Paul currently lives in Stouffville with his wife Melanie and daughters Natalie and Olivia.

With your support we can re-elect Paul as our Member of Parliament and he can continue his hard work to promote our local interests at the national level.
