Isabelle Morin is a Member of Parliament with a clear vision for a sustainable and inclusive society. Alongside Tom Mulcair, she is ready to continue defending the interests of our community in the redrawn riding of Dorval—Lachine—Lasalle.

Known for her authentic, constituent-focused approach, Isabelle has served as a member of the Standing Committee on Transport, Infrastructure and Communities and the Standing Committee on Health. As deputy critic for Seniors, she is fighting to restore the retirement age from 67 to 65. She also serves as the NDP critic for Animal Welfare and was President of the NDP Youth Caucus.

Isabelle has led the charge on key local environmental issues. She strongly criticized the Conservatives’ decision to eliminate door-to-door mail delivery and their cuts to our aerospace industry and Employment Insurance benefits. She has vigorously advocated for stronger protection of our lakes and rivers, funding for affordable housing and investment in public transit.

Isabelle has a diploma in literature from Cégep François-Xavier Garneau and a Bachelor of Education from Sherbrooke University. During her university studies, she was Executive Vice-President of her students’ federation (FEUS) and sat on the board of directors of the Fédération Universitaire du Québec (FEUQ).

Before entering federal politics, Isabelle took part in various humanitarian missions abroad and taught in various education environments such as in provincial prisons, in education centers for migrants and at the Cavelier-De LaSalle School. A strong defender of equality, diversity and the environment, Isabelle is committed to helping put Canada on the right track and making, along with Tom Mulcair and the NDP, life more affordable for middle-class families.
