Eric Duncan was elected Member of Parliament for Stormont-Dundas-South Glengarry in October 2019.
Within his first year on Parliament Hill, Eric was named to Conservative Leader Erin O’Toole’s Leadership Team as Question Period Co-ordinator.
Prior to being elected as Member of Parliament at the age of 31, Eric had a successful career in both the government and private sector. He brings a mix of public and business experience having served in various capacities at all three levels of government and working at his family’s trucking business, JED Express, in South Mountain. Eric worked alongside his father, Edwin, at JED Express for 3 years (2016-2019). Their family business employs over 60 staff and has been named one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies® annually since 2016.
Eric’s commitment to public service began at a young age. At 18 he was one of the youngest elected officials in Canadian history as a municipal Councillor in North Dundas and was elected Mayor in 2010 at the age of 22 with 72% of the vote. He made further history as the youngest Warden in SD&G’s 168 year history in 2014.
Eric became the first consecutive term Warden in the Counties’ history the following year, which allowed him to be elected Chair of the Eastern Ontario Wardens Caucus in 2015, an influential group of regional governments in Eastern Ontario that works with the provincial and federal governments on policy issues.
Eric has a strong passion for community volunteerism. Along with founding Camp Erin Eastern Ontario (a bereavement camp for children who have lost a close family member), he has been involved with nearly 50 organizations and community events, raising millions of dollars for charity and important causes.
Secure the future, help elect Erin O’Toole’s Conservatives and get Canada’s economy back on track.
