From Foster Care to the
front benches of Parliament?

Carmen Wilson is an inspiration to everyone who hears her story.

Carmen Wilson was born in Kingston, Jamaica and immigrated to Canada in August 1976 at the age of 11.

After a turbulent experience in Canada and an intervention by the Children's Aid Society, Carmen was removed from her parent's home.

She was placed in a foster home by the Peel Children's Aid Society and eventually raised by a loving family in Erin, Ontario.

In Erin, Carmen thrived as a successful student and athelete. She demonstrated her resilience and ability to overcome very personal obstacles at an early age.

After graduation, Carmen received her diploma from George Brown College. 

Intent on pursuing a career in financial services, Carmen earned her licensing credentials as a mortgage agent, life insurance agent, and mutual fund agent.

Carmen has participated in numerous community groups in a leadership role, and is a proud mother of three grown children.

Carmen wants to use her life experience and personal expertise in finance to help the Pierre Poilivre government represent all Canadians. 

She could be the first person in Canadian history to go from "foster care to the front benches" in Parliament.

Her campaign is about the resilience of Canadians of all backgrounds to overcome almost insurmountable odds to succeed and contribute to building the Canadian dream for all.
