About Pam Damoff

Pam Damoff was first elected as the Member of Parliament for Oakville North-Burlington in 2015. A community activist and business professional with over 25 years of corporate experience, Pam served as an Oakville Town Councillor from 2010-2015 prior to becoming an MP.  

Pam Damoff currently serves as the Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Foreign Affairs (consular services) and is a member of the Standing Committee on Access to Information, Privacy and Ethics, and the Subcommittee on International Human Rights.

Following the 2021 federal election, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau appointed Pam Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Public Safety. Pam has been a member of the Public Safety and National Security Committee from 2016-2023 and is a proven advocate for criminal justice reform and advocate for programs that train and rehabilitate those who are incarcerated so that they can re-enter society with viable skills to improve their lives and contribute positively to their communities. She was instrumental in tabling a report on the pervasive nature of systemic racism in policing that concluded that a transformative national effort is required to ensure that all Black, Indigenous and racialized people in Canada are not subject to discrimination in our criminal justice system.  She also worked with the Public Safety Committee to table Bill C-71, common-sense firearms legislation that ensures anyone who purchases a firearm in Canada has a lifetime background check that includes a review of their online behaviour, and whether or not they have a history of domestic violence and/or are subject to any restraining orders.  Pam previously served as Parliamentary Secretary to Indigenous Services and Health, and as Vice-Chair of the Status of Women Committee.

Pam was instrumental in passing Bill-233, which includes Keira’s Law, in the House of Commons, which enhances continuing education seminars for judges on matters related to intimate partner violence and coercive control, and Bill C-5, reforming the criminal justice system.  She helped to introduce Bill C-21 – firearms control legislation which puts forward some of the strongest gun control measures in over 40 years including a freeze on the import, sale and transfer of handguns -- and worked to ban the discredited and cruel practice known as conversion therapy, which entails convincing members of the LGBTQ2 community that their sexual orientation or gender expression can and should be altered and using cruel methods in order to change them.  In 2019, Ms. Damoff was instrumental in securing $150 million in federal funding in Budget 2019 to support the Marathon of Hope Cancer Centre Network, with over three years of dedicated work with Dr. Victor Ling, fellow Members of Parliament, the Minister of Health and cancer research institutes and hospitals across Canada.

Pam is recognized as a leading advocate for active transportation and better cycling infrastructure in Oakville North-Burlington. She co-founded Cycle Oakville to promote cycling and improve cycling infrastructure and received the 2013 Bicycling Leadership Award for her promotion of cycling in Ontario. She is an active volunteer in her community, serving as Chair of the Oakville Terry Fox Run.

Pam is a proud recipient of the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal and the Paul Harris Fellow recognition from Rotary International. She also received the Linda Jones Women’s Activist Award from the Oakville District Labour Council for her community service, and the Top 40 Fabulous Women Over 40 Excellence Award for Community Leadership.

She is passionate about many causes including employment for persons living with disabilities, women’s empowerment, mental health, environmental protection, criminal justice reform, Indigenous reconciliation and cycling and improved cycling infrastructure.
