About Pierre-Luc

Pierre-Luc Dusseault was elected to represent the people of Sherbrooke in 2011 and re-elected in 2015. He works hard every day to defend the interests of our community in Ottawa.

After making history as the youngest MP ever elected to the House of Commons, Pierre-Luc quickly demonstrated his skills and ability to deliver results. He has chaired two parliamentary committees: the Standing Committee on Access to Information, Privacy and Ethics, and the Standing Committee on Government Operations and Estimates.

A leader in the fight for a fairer electoral system, Pierre-Luc also served as the NDP’s deputy critic for Democratic and Parliamentary Reform.

Born in Granby, Pierre-Luc moved to Sherbrooke in 2008 where he received a diploma in social studies with a specialization in international development from the Cégep de Sherbrooke. At the time of his election, he was studying applied politics at the Université de Sherbrooke.

Pierre-Luc has always been passionate about politics and got involved with the New Democratic Party for its message of social justice, equality and fairness. He was co-founder and president of the university’s student NDP club, and was president of Sherbrooke’s NDP riding association.

Aware of the current cynicism about politics, Pierre-Luc wants to help his constituents and today’s youth positively engage with politics. Active in various organizations across the region, he works tirelessly to listen to the concerns of his constituents and defend their interest in Parliament.
