For 25 years, Sheri has brought people together to tackle some of the most pressing issues in Saskatoon West. With her election in 2015, she’s ready to get the job done as Member of Parliament.
As CEO for the local United Way since 2009, Sheri worked with community, labour and business groups to launch Saskatoon’s first-ever Plan to End Homelessness. Its Housing First Program is living proof that, with solid leadership, we can tackle poverty and save money at the same time. Sheri also implemented the organization’s ground-breaking Aboriginal Engagement Strategy.
Under Sheri’s leadership, United Way support for community programs has grown 60%—to nearly $5-million in 2014. To further strengthen community services, she co-founded the Saskatoon Collaborative Funding Partnership and has co-chaired the Saskatoon Regional Intersectoral Committee.
Sheri was the inaugural Justice of the Peace for Saskatchewan’s Victims of Domestic Violence Act. And in 2014, Sheri’s hard work was recognized with a YWCA Woman of Distinction Award for Community Building.
Sheri has worked, lived and raised a family in Saskatoon West for more than 20 years. As a proud mother and grandmother, she is dedicated to building a better country—one we can be proud to leave to the next generation.
