Carla sees the role of MPP as being the voice for her community at Queen’s Park.
“As the representative for the Riding of Cambridge, I am determined to be well researched on the issues I have to address and vote on. The most important part of that research for me is listening, listening carefully to my community. I will be resolute. I will never stop listening.
Simply put, the concerns of my community will be my priority. These will shape the issues I pursue vigorously at Queen’s Park.”
A long-time Cambridge resident, Carla Johnson is an educator, author, enthusiastic community volunteer and inspiring public speaker.
Carla believes community spirit is the heart of a good society. In the spring of 2020, she launched CMH Lunch Is On Us, an initiative that fed hospital workers 3,000 free lunches during the early crisis of COVID-19. She worked on several other community initiatives and more recently she served on the committee for the Cambridge Poppy Project, a collection of art installations using over 33,000 hand-knit and ,crocheted poppies to honour our veterans.
Passionate about embracing everyone in the community, Carla was a charismatic, middle school teacher. Having worked with hundreds of students across the city, she remains close to many today.
Carla self-published two books and was the V.P. of Corporate Affairs for the Bravo Group in Mississauga supporting start-up businesses across the province.
An accomplished singer and piano player, Carla has also studied photography, painting and pottery.
Carla and her husband Steven raised their daughter here in Cambridge and she has built strong connections across the many parts of our city. An engaged listener and a confident advocate, Carla is a caring bridge builder who is dedicated to serving her community.
