MLA Biographies Now Online from Day One

Did you ever wonder what your MLA did before entering politics? What about the very first Member of the Legislature for your constituency? There is now an online biography for every MLA who ever served.

As part of the 200th anniversary of Province House, where elected members of the House of Assembly meet, biographies of all members since 1984 are now posted. This complements the 1984 print edition of biographies, edited and compiled by Shirley Elliott, which is also online, and the 1958 edition by Bruce Fergusson.

Academic research or trivia tool, the biographies include information such as terms of office, positions held, occupations, birth and death dates,  political party affiliations, and family connections to other MLAs. 

The new posting also includes lists of premiers, speakers, and ministers since 1984.

The information is available at, https://nslegislature.ca/sites/default/files/pdfs/people/mlabios.pdf.
