Born and raised in Northern Ontario, Erika Lougheed knew that government could better serve her community. In order to make it happen, she hit the streets, knocking doors and discussing the pressing issues facing her community. Her hard work and dedication earned her the vote of her community, electing her to East Ferris council. Now, as a candidate for the ONDP, she is seeking to unseat the government of Doug Ford and bring transformative leadership to Nipissing.
Councillor Lougheed has roots throughout Northern Ontario and has happily made East Ferris her permanent home. She has a long history in non-profit management with the United Way, YMCA, and Nipissing University as well as experiences as a wilderness canoe guide, yoga teacher, communications professor, business owner and hobby farmer. You can often find Erika walking through the trails in East Ferris with her family and her Chesapeake Bay Retriever, Agatha and Bulldog, Ronda. She is an active volunteer, aspiring potter, as well as a strong advocate for equity and the environment.
