MLA Janis Irwin, Edmonton-Highlands-Norwood

Father, we thank you today for MLA Janis Irwin, her love of her community and her commitment to it. We pray that you would strengthen her to stand up for what is right and to help her as she works for all Albertans, especially those who are often overlooked, or looked down on. We pray you would bless her family as well, may they all know your presence and peace this holiday season. In Jesus’ name we pray. 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.
