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. As a Vice President of the Canadian NATO Parliamentary Association, I have a keen interest in Canada’s continued relationship, and role within the North Atlantic Treaty Organization.

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 also sponsored Dartmouth Senator Jane Cordy’s Senate Public Bill, An Act Respecting National Sickle Cell Awareness Day, which 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

Our office gives priority for these items to Legions, Schools, Organizations and for special events. When we have extras we do our best to fulfill the requests of our constituents.
