Nelly Shin is the first Canadian Member of Parliament of Korean descent. Her people-centric approach to politics is rooted in her experience teaching students in inner city schools and her outreach to the hurting and marginalized in a variety of North American communities.
As the MP for Port Mood-Coquitlam, Nelly has journeyed with her constituents during a time of national crisis. She has advocated for vulnerable businesses, a national framework for mental health, and a path to healing and justice for victims of racism. She is also a strong voice against gender-based violence.
During her time in Parliament, she has served as Deputy Shadow Minister of Canadian Heritage and is a Member of the Standing Committee for the Status of Women.
Prior to her election, Nelly Shin was a high school teacher and recording artist whose original music received airplay on Adult Contemporary radio. Her love for British Columbia’s natural beauty has inspired multiple music albums, a novel manuscript and support for fragile ecosystems.
