Chrystia Freeland is the Member of Parliament for Toronto Centre, after her by-election victory in November 2013.

She was born in Peace River, Alberta and studied at Harvard where she received her undergraduate degree, and continued her studies on a Rhodes Scholarship at Oxford University.

After cutting her journalistic teeth as a Ukraine-based stringer for the Financial Times, Washington Post, and The Economist, Chrystia went on to wear many hats at the Financial Times, including deputy editor, UK news editor, Moscow bureau chief, Eastern Europe correspondent, editor of its weekend edition, and editor of FT.com.

Between 1999 and 2001, she served as deputy editor of The Globe and Mail, before becoming a managing editor at the Financial Times.

In 2010, Chrystia joined Canadian-owned Thomson Reuters as editor-at-large. She most recently worked as Managing Director and Editor of Consumer News.

Chrystia was a weekly columnist for the Globe and Mail, writing extensively about the challenges facing the middle class.

Her books include Sale of a Century: The Inside Story of the Second Russian Revolution (2000) and Plutocrats: The Rise of the New Global Super-Rich and the Fall of Everyone Else (2012).

Chrystia is married and a proud mother of three children, raising them in Toronto Centre.

She is a Co-Chair of the Liberal Party’s Economic Advisory Council and was appointed the Party’s critic for International Trade in January 2014.
