Business owner Stephanie Maghnam wins Ontario Liberal nomination in Kanata–Carleton

Monday, January 29, 2018

KANATA–Local business owner Stephanie Maghnam was elected today as the Ontario Liberal Party candidate in Kanata–Carleton following a competitive nomination race with hundreds of members. 

“I am honoured to join Premier Kathleen Wynne’s team to fight for fairness and a positive vision for Kanata—Carleton,” Maghnam said. “We need fresh, positive leadership in this community that puts people first to ensure fair wages, free tuition and expanded access to prescription drugs.”

Stephanie Maghnam was awarded the City of Ottawa Citizen of the Year award for Kanata North in 2017. As an entrepreneur, Maghnam owns and operates businesses within the Kanata community, where she has lived for twenty years. She is also a dedicated member of several local boards and community projects, including the Dunrobin Women’s Institute, the Ottawa Muslim Women’s Organization, the Kanata-March Horticultural Society and works to support women and girls at women’s shelters and with families with children and young adults on the autism spectrum.

Maghnam was born and raised in Edmonton, where she studied journalism and broadcasting and was a television host and reporter for a community station.

Under the leadership of Premier Kathleen Wynne, the Ontario Liberal Party has a plan to deliver opportunity and fairness for everyone. While Ontario has a balanced budget and growing economy, not everyone is feeling that growth yet. That’s why we are working to deliver a fairer, better Ontario through free tuition for 210,000 students, free prescription drug coverage for children and youth, 100,000 affordable child-care spaces, and a $15-an-hour minimum wage.
