Kevin Lamoureux was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba in 1962. He got his first job when he was 11 years old, pumping gas for his father for $1 per hour.
He attended high school in both Manitoba and Saskatchewan and in 1982 signed up for service with the Air Command of the Canadian Forces. He served for three years.
In 1983, he married Cathy. They have two grown children, Raymond and Cindy.
After leaving the Canadian Forces, Kevin attended the University of Winnipeg part time while he worked at the Bay and at Caprice Distributors.
In 1988, he was elected for the first time to serve as Member of the Legislative Assembly of Manitoba. Since then, he has won more election victories than any other Liberal in Manitoba.
During his time as MLA, Kevin held more critic roles than any other MLA in recent history. He has championed important issues such as justice, immigration, labour, finance, education and housing.
In 2010, Kevin was elected Member of Parliament for Winnipeg North. In the 117 days between his election and the call for a general election, Kevin worked hard to get results for Winnipeg North and although only there for a short time, left a lasting impression on his fellow MPs. Kevin was re-elected Member of Parliament for Winnipeg North for the 41st Canadian Parliament and has proudly continued on in his fight to defend the interest of his constituents, Manitobans and all Canadians.
In Ottawa, he is a vocal advocate for the needs of our communities; he has spoken more than over 300 other MPs in the House, putting our needs front and centre. At home in Winnipeg North, Kevin has put people first: meeting with constituents every week at the local McDonald’s, as well as holding public meetings on important issues like public safety and youth recreation.
