About the MP

The Honourable Diane Ablonczy has proudly represented her Calgary constituents in Ottawa for more than two decades. She is one of only a handful of current Members of Parliament to have been honoured
with such enduring support.

Mrs. Ablonczy was first elected in 1993. She later became a key member of the shadow cabinet of Her Majesty’s Loyal Opposition, serving as chief critic for Citizenship and Immigration, Health, and Human Resources Development. Upon forming government in 2006, Prime Minister Stephen Harper appointed Mrs. Ablonczy Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Finance. In 2008 she became Minister of State (Small Business and Tourism), a position she held until 2010, when she was appointed Minister of
State (Seniors). From January 2011 to July 2013, she held the position of Minister of State of Foreign Affairs (Americas and Consular Affairs), representing Canada in the Americas and overseeing consular affairs around the world. Mrs. Ablonczy is currently a member of the Standing Committee on Public Safety and National Security.

Throughout Mrs. Ablonczy’s long political career, she has been a strong voice for accountability in government, for fiscal conservatism, and for family and community values. She is a founding
member of the Reform Party of Canada, helped craft the Canadian Reform Conservative Alliance’s inaugural policy declaration and was an early and ardent supporter of the Progressive Conservative-Canadian Alliance merger.

Prior to entering political life, Mrs. Ablonczy enjoyed a varied career, which ranged from teaching junior high school to managing a grain farm operation to building a successful law practice.

Mrs. Ablonczy lives in Calgary with her husband Ron and has one daughter, four stepchildren and eight grandchildren.
