Judy Sgro

Judy Sgro - York West

By serving her neighbours from 1987 – 1994 on the North York City Council, and then from 1995 – 1998 as a member of the Toronto City Council, Judy Sgro worked to foster a solid reputation as a woman of action.

Building upon a successful tenure in municipal politics, where she served the people of her community as the Vice-Chair of the Toronto Police Services Board, as a member of the North York Council’s Executive Committee, and as a contributing member of the Intergovernmental Affairs Committee, Judy Sgro wanted to focus her attention towards national solutions to local problems.

Her initial election to Parliament for the federal riding of York West in 1999, and her subsequent re-election in 2000, 2004, 2006, 2008 and 2011, cemented that reputation and provided her with a way to serve the people of York West on the national stage.

Judy Sgro wasted no time once she arrived in Ottawa. From 2001 – 2002, she was named Chairperson of the Prime Minister’s Task Force on Urban Issues. The report derived from those efforts contained numerous insights which helped to shape national urban policy for several years. In addition to serving in roles such as the Chair of the Standing Committee on the Status of Women, as the Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Public Works and as the Vice-Chair of the Canada/US Parliamentary Friendship Group, Judy Sgro was appointed as the Minister of Citizenship and Immigration in December of 2003.

As Minister of Citizenship and Immigration, Judy championed family re-unification policies and worked hard to ensure the immigration system was fair and compassionate.

In Opposition, Judy Sgro is no less focused on the needs of the people of York West. From 2007 – 2009, she worked as part of the National Liberal Caucus as the Critic for National Revenue. Today, in her capacity as the Official Opposition Critic for Seniors and Pensions and the Status of Women, Judy Sgro has launched an aggressive effort to help ensure retirement income security, coverage and adequacy for all Canadians.

Judy Sgro lives in Toronto with her husband where they enjoy spending time with their children and grandchildren.
