Leah Taylor Roy
I was born in York Region and have deep roots here. I currently live in Aurora, with my husband, Peter Roy. Together we raised six children and have the pleasure of two granddaughters.
I grew up in a family, who still lives in York Region, that served and continues to serve in public office and are leaders and members of many community charities and not-for-profits. This gave me the legacy to be a dynamic, effective, and passionate Member of Parliament, ready to dedicate my life to serving you and our communities. As MP, I will be your strong voice in Ottawa, working hard in Parliament to ensure that the priorities of Aurora—Oak Ridges—Richmond Hill, are heard and addressed now and for future generations.
I have the proven experience it takes to make me a successful Member of Parliament for Aurora—Oak Ridges—Richmond Hill. I have been well prepared by a rigorous and comprehensive education. After graduating from the University of Toronto with a degree in Commerce, I attended Harvard University where I received a Master’s in Public Policy, with a focus on International Finance and Development, as well as taking classes at the MIT Sloan School of Business, the Harvard Business School, and the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy.
My passion for public policy and business led me to a position with the World Bank, where I worked in both policy analysis and the Treasury. I returned to Canada and joined the global management consulting firm, McKinsey and Company, in the Toronto office where I worked across Canada for major Canadian corporations in every region and sector of the economy. Later, I became an Executive Vice President of my husband’s family’s energy co-generation company.
My commitment to the community goes beyond politics. I am proud to have established a not-for-profit that focused on practical solutions to support small businesses in developing countries. I am now an active supporter of numerous York Region charities, including CHATS, Habitat for Humanity, Aurora Black History Association, CMHA, Inn from the Cold, Salaam Foundation, Heart and Stroke, and Voices of Joy - a local choir for people of all abilities - York Regional Environmental Alliance, Oak Ridges Morraine Conservation, Community Living, and the Salaam Foundation. The opportunity for serving our communities and helping our neighbours are endless. I encourage you to find your own niche.
