Welcome

I’m pleased to be your Member of Parliament for Dartmouth-Cole Harbour.
We’ve been able to accomplish a lot so far- but there is much more we can do. Much more we will do.

We have a great team in both of our offices and they’re capable and ready to serve you. Our office can help you with numerous federal issues- it’s what we are here for.
Our local Dartmouth-Cole Harbour Constituency Office is located at 82 Tacoma Drive, Suite 200 in Dartmouth.  All of my contact information is located on the Contact Us page.

I am honoured to sit on three committees- The Standing Committee on Environment and Sustainable Development, the Standing Committee on National Defence, and the Subcommittee on Sports-Related Concussions in Canada of the Standing Committee on Health. I am a proud Executive Member member of the Canadian NATO Parliamentary Association.

My team and I are deeply proud that we managed to have two Private Members’ Bills passed within my first Parliamentary Session. We worked hard on Bill C-238, #BrightIdea, “The National Strategy for Safe and Environmentally Sound Disposal of Lamps Containing Mercury Act”, which received Royal Assent on June 22nd, 2017. I had the opportunity to sponsor Dartmouth Senator Jane Cordy’s Senate Public Bill, An Act Respecting National Sickle Cell Awareness Day, which has also received Royal Assent.

I encourage you to sign up for my newsletter so you can stay up to date with my work and our community. I enjoy reading and responding to your letters, calls, emails, tweets and posts and encourage you to keep engaging with me! I always want to know your views on issues.

I look forward to chatting with you,

-Darren
