On April 15th, at 7pm, the Windsor--Tecumseh Conservative Association is delighted to welcome Lethbridge MP Rachael Harder as part of its Town Hall Series.
Before entering public life, Rachael earned a strong reputation for building community and empowering others. Working as a youth sociologist and leadership consultant, her work took her across Canada and gave her the opportunity to work with business and not-for-profit leaders, universities, colleges, and young world-changers.
Being raised on a small farm in southern Alberta instilled a strong work ethic and resourcefulness that is inherent in everything Rachael does.
Her entrepreneurial spirit, determination, and commitment to innovation were made evident at the age of 11 when Rachael started her own small business, raising dogs and running a boarding kennel. With the revenue generated from her business, Rachael funded numerous international infrastructure projects, participated in four international humanitarian missions, and put herself through University.
Rachael holds a Bachelor of Education and Bachelor of Arts with a General Social Sciences Major in Sociology, Political Science, and Psychology from the University of Lethbridge.
In 2016 Rachael was named one of Lethbridge’s “Top 40 under 40.”
As a life-long volunteer, Rachael’s efforts have made a difference in Lethbridge. She has served on the city’s Community and Social Development Committee, the Lethbridge Youth Justice Committee, and the Canadian Mental Health Youth Anti-Stigma Leaders’ Steering Committee. She also volunteered for the Lethbridge 2019 Canada Winter Games bid and the 2015 Alberta 55+ Winter Games. She continues to plan events, raise money, and lend her voice to numerous causes throughout the Lethbridge region.
