Meet Michelle Ferreri
Michelle is the Member of Parliament for Peterborough-Kawartha and was elected in the 2021 federal election. Michelle was appointed as Shadow Minister for Families, Children & Social Development as part of the Conservative Shadow Cabinet for the 44th Parliament.
Michelle also sits as a member of the Standing Committee on the Status of Women and the Standing Committee on Human Resources, Skills and Social Development and the Status of Persons with Disabilities.
Prior to being elected, Michelle was a well-known community advocate, an award-winning entrepreneur, a committed volunteer, and a highly sought-after public speaker and social media marketer.
Michelle has over 20 years’ experience in media, marketing and public speaking. During her time as a reporter, one of Michelle’s most memorable experiences was when she had the opportunity to visit the Canadian Forces Base, Alert and fly to the station on a C-17 Globemaster.
Michelle is a graduate of Trent University (Biology/Anthropology) and Loyalist College (Biotechnology). Her education in science has led her to be a passionate advocate for physical and mental health.
She is a proud mother of three children, between the ages of 13 and 19, and shares her life with her supportive partner, Ryan, and his three daughters. As a small-town girl, growing up in Douro-Dummer, Michelle understands the value of family and hard work.
For the first time in more than 35 years, the bellwether riding of Peterborough-Kawartha is sending an opposition Member of Parliament to Ottawa.
Michelle is honoured to work for the community of Peterborough-Kawartha, her home.
