Suzette Foster is proud to run with the Green Party of Ontario in the new riding of Kiiwetinoong, the only riding in Ontario with a majority Indigenous population.
Suzette is an Ojibway woman who is a Sixties Scoop survivor and a proud mom to three successful young men. She has lived in the Red Lake area of Northwestern Ontario since 1987 and, as a worker in the mining industry and with previous experience in the forestry industry, Suzette is very familiar with the resource-dependent nature of Northern Ontario’s economy. A supporter of small businesses, Suzette acknowledges the need for local economic development.
Suzette is an active member of her community, having served as President of the Red Lake Indian Friendship Center and as a board member for several other volunteer committees and boards. Through her collective experience as a resident, worker, and volunteer in the Kiiwetinoong riding, Suzette has a deep understanding of the challenges that Northwestern Ontarians face in getting the government’s attention on critical issues in the riding, such as access to clean drinking water, affordable housing, and health and educational resources. She knows how worrying the rising cost of food is for many people in the North. Suzette also recognizes the importance of ongoing efforts to move forward on the recommendations of the national Truth and Reconciliation Commission.
Suzette Foster is ready to bring people-powered change to the Kiiwetinoong riding and voice her fellow residents’ needs at Queen’s Park. With her unique perspective and leadership skills, Suzette can build the Ontario we want.
