MLA Janis Irwin, Edmonton-Highlands-Norwood

Dear Heavenly Father, on this day we ask for your blessing to be upon Ms. Janis Irwin, MLA for Edmonton-Highlands-Norwood. We ask specifically for your guidance in her work to gain equal funding for schools and for our economic future. We know that Philippians 4:19 tells us, “And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.” (NIV) We pray this in the mighty name of Jesus Christ, 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.
