Hon. Malaya Marcelino, Notre Dame

It is with great joy we come to you with our prayers, Lord God. Today, we pray for Hon. Malaya Marcelino. We ask for your blessing to be poured out upon her as she transitions into her new ministerial role. Guide her steps that she may not falter. Provide strategies and solutions. Tend to her loved ones, and give them your peace. Amen.

Malaya Marcelino was first elected as the MLA for Notre Dame in 2019. She immigrated from the Philippines as a child with her family, who have been strong voices for improving the lives of newcomers. Marcelino served as the official opposition critic for labour and immigration, where she advocated for good jobs for newcomers and better-quality labour conditions, as well as better health care and safety for inner-city families. Prior to becoming an MLA, Marcelino was a stay at home mom and worked part-time as a business writer and researcher for a Manitoba agribusiness firm. She and her husband live in Winnipeg’s West End neighbourhood with their two young children.
