Who is Val Meredith?

Valerie Meredith was a member of the Canadian House of Commons from 1993 to 2004. She was a realtor by career.

She was a town councillor in Slave Lake, Alberta from 1973 until 1977 when she became Mayor, serving until 1980.

In 1988, Meredith made an unsuccessful attempt to enter politics as a Reform party candidate in the Surrey—White Rock—South Langley riding. Her second campaign for the riding in 1993 was successful. She was re-elected in 1997 and 2000 in South Surrey—White Rock—Langley as the Reform party transitioned into the Canadian Alliance then the Conservative Party. In all, she was a member of the 35th, 36th and 37th Canadian Parliaments.

In early 2001, she temporarily joined the Democratic Representative Caucus group in protest of Stockwell Day's Alliance Party leadership.

Following electoral district restructuring and the formation of the new Conservative Party, Meredith attempted to become the Conservative candidate in South Surrey—White Rock—Cloverdale. She lost the party's riding nomination to Russ Hiebert and left federal politics after the 2004 general election. Following her departure from federal politics, she became a partner in The Parliamentary Group, a political lobby organisation based in Ottawa.
