Meet Scott Aitchison
Scott Aitchison was born and raised in Huntsville, Ontario – a community where neighbours show up for neighbours and your word is your bond. He knows firsthand what it’s like to overcome adversity through strength and persistence, and he’s determined to stand up for his constituents.
Constantly looking for ways to roll up his sleeves and contribute to his neighbours, Scott was first elected at the age of 21 to Huntsville Town Council. After serving as Town Councillor, District Councillor and Deputy Mayor, he was elected as Mayor of Huntsville in 2014 on a promise of fiscal discipline, responsible governance and excellent customer service. As Mayor, he built a reputation as a consensus-builder relentlessly focused on breaking down barriers and finding solutions.
In 2019, Scott once again stepped up to put action to words when he ran to be a Member of Parliament. Seeing his ability to get results, the residents of Parry Sound-Muskoka overwhelmingly sent Scott to Ottawa on a promise to shake up the partisan gridlock in Parliament and stand up for the best interest of every Canadian from every walk of life.
In 2021, Scott’s constituents re-elected him to represent them for a second term. He sits on a number of committees, and in October of 2022, Scott was appointed as Housing and Diversity and Inclusion critic.
Scott Aitchison believes that there is nothing wrong about Canada that cannot be fixed with everything that is right about it.
