About 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.
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 12 and 17, 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.
