Heavenly father, we are so thankful for MLA Janis Irwin. We ask that you would fill her with much joy today, that she would be re-energized in the work that she does. Bless her and give her wisdom for the the many complex and difficult decisions she finds herself in. May she find your peace, Lord. Thank you again for her, and we ask that you would fill her life with your love. In the name of Jesus. Amen!
Janis was elected in 2019 on a campaign centered around her deep involvement to the Edmonton community, and her strong commitment to public service and social justice. Prior to her election Janis built her career as a teacher, vice principal, university lecturer, and Executive Director of High School Curriculum at Alberta Education. She also builds community through volunteering for a number of organizations, including Arts on the Ave, Boyle McCauley News, Edmonton Mennonite Centre for Newcomers, Highlands Historical Society, and the Somali Canadian Women and Children Association, among others.
