A champion for a better future in Halifax
Andy Fillmore was first elected Member of Parliament for Halifax in 2015. While serving in Parliament, Andy has been devoted to making Canada’s communities healthy and sustainable spaces in which to live, work, and play; he has pushed for better protection for the environment and has stood up for Halifax.
Andy has served as Parliamentary Secretary for Canadian Heritage, for Democratic Institutions, and Infrastructure. Previously, he sat as Chair of the House of Commons Standing Committee on Indigenous Affairs.
In May 2016, Andy introduced his first private member’s motion to the House of Commons, calling for greenhouse gas analyses of government infrastructure. In September 2016, the motion passed with strong multi-party support. It was one of the many steps taken to promote sustainable Green infrastructure.
Prior to his election in 2015, Andy spent twenty years as an urban planner and community builder in the private, public, and academic sectors. As Halifax’s first Manager of Urban Design, Andy’s career has included projects like the new Halifax Central Library and “HRM by Design,” the downtown Halifax plan. His leadership on HRM by Design has seen development activity in downtown Halifax increase by over forty times.
Outside of public service, Andy was a Director and an Associate Professor at the Dalhousie University’s School of Planning. In addition to a master’s degree from Dalhousie, he also has attended Acadia University and received a master’s from Harvard University.
Andy grew up in Halifax, and he is a proud, unrelenting champion for his hometown in Canada’s Parliament.
