About Han Dong
Raised and educated in Toronto, Han, his sister, and his parents immigrated to Canada from Shanghai in the early 1990's. Growing up working at his parent’s 24-hour coffee shop, Han learned the value of hard work, family, and community which ultimately lead him to public service.
In 2019 Han was elected as the Member of Parliament for Don Valley North. He currently serves as the Co-Chair Canada-China Legislative Association, a member of the Standing Committee on Human Resources, Skills, and Social Development and the Status of Persons with Disabilities, and a member of the Standing Committee on Access to Information, Privacy, and Ethics.
Prior to being elected to the House of Commons in Ottawa, Han served as a Member Provincial Parliament (MPP) at Queen’s Park from 2014-2018, standing up for public education, and consumers rights.
A passionate advocate for our Community, Han has continuously stood up for the residents of Don Valley North, advocating for safer communities, easing traffic congestion, action to combat climate change, and housing affordability. Han has proven that he will never stop working hard to support the residents of our diverse, dynamic, and forward-looking community.
