CANADA POLITICS: Andrew Scheer Biography

Andrew Scheer was born 20 May 1979. Andrew Scheer has spent his working life both in the public and private sectors, providing him with the experience he needs to be an effective representative for the hard-working families of Regina-Qu’Appelle because he knows how Ottawa “really works” and he’s also intimately aware of the many opportunities and challenges that face other hard-working families in Saskatchewan.

Andrew studied History and Politics at the University of Ottawa and the University of Regina, and is fluent in both official languages.

For several years prior to 2004, Andrew worked in Ottawa for the Leader of the Opposition, specializing in communications and outreach and learning “how things really work in Ottawa”.

He also worked in an MP’s riding office, learning about the dual responsibilities of a working parliamentarian when in Ottawa, and as a hard-working champion for the people he represents back home.

When still a young man, he made the decision to move to Saskatchewan permanently because he strongly believes in the vast opportunities this province has to offer hard-working families like his.

Andrew and his wife Jill live and work in Regina, where they raise their five children, Thomas, Grace, Madeline, Henry and Mary. In Saskatchewan, Andrew passed the Canadian Accredited Insurance Broker program and started his career in the insurance industry, working at Shenher Insurance in Regina.

In 2004, the people of Regina-Qu’Appelle placed their confidence in Andrew and elected him to the House of Commons as one of Canada’s youngest MPs.

They have continued to maintain that confidence, choosing to re-elect him in 2006, 2008, and 2011. Andrew now has seven years of experience making sure that the needs and concerns of Regina-Qu’Appelle are heard in Ottawa.

In the 39th Parliament Andrew served as the Assistant Deputy Chair of Committees of the Whole. In the 40th Parliament Andrew served as the Deputy Speaker.

On June 2nd, 2011, Andrew was honoured to be elected the Speaker of the House of Commons for the 41st Parliament.

Following his re-election in the October 2015 general election, Andrew was honoured to be selected as the Official Opposition House Leader by Conservative Party Interim Leader Rona Ambrose.
