Prime Minister Justin Trudeau appoints Marc G. Serré as Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Natural Resources

NICKEL BELT-GREATER SUDBURY – Marc G. Serré, Member of Parliament for Nickel Belt, is honoured to have been appointed Parliamentary Secretary to the Honourable Seamus O’Regan Jr., Minister of Natural Resources.

In his new role as Parliamentary Secretary, Serré will support Minister O’Regan in his ministerial duties, including representing the Minister in the House of Commons and at various events.
Elected in 2015, Marc G. Serré has been a strong advocate for rural communities, especially for the constituents of Nickel Belt and Northern Ontario. Serré has previously served as the Chair of the Liberal Rural Caucus, Chair of the Northern Ontario Liberal Caucus, and as Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Rural Economic Development. He has also served as a member of
the Standing Committee on Natural Resources, and his wealth of experience will serve him well in his new role.

As a Northern Ontario Member of Parliament, Serré has seen first-hand the positive impact natural resource sectors can have on local communities and economic development. Serré will support Minister O’Regan’s mandate to ensure that Canada’s energy and natural resource sectors remain a source of good middle class jobs, prosperity, and opportunity across the country. Our natural resource workers have the ingenuity, determination, and work ethic to build Canada’s low-emissions energy future and Serré will support them as they build an inclusive, sustainable future.

“I look forward to working alongside Minister O’Regan. I accept the responsibilities that come with the work ahead and am very much up to the task. I know the potential we have to grow and
develop our natural resource sector as a country just as we’ve seen right here in Nickel Belt – Greater Sudbury. I look forward to supporting priorities that matter to Canadian’s as they relate to the natural resource sector and am honoured to take on this role.”
