Description

The Greater Kingston Chamber of Commerce welcomes the Honourable Todd Smith for a member only event, Friday June 14th at the Ambassador Hotel & Conference Centre.

Minister Smith will discuss the cutting of red tape to ease the burden on small and medium businesses, broadband and cellular investment, the restructuring of the apprenticeship system in Ontario and economic investment in argrio food in the region. 
 
Over the last 7 years, Todd has been a strong advocate for the people in the Quinte Area, at Queen's Park.  He has fought to get funding for small, rural hospitals, to keep demonstration schools open, and to be a voice for businesses in our communities. Todd has also put forward Private Member's Bills that help local families and businesses such as Garrett's Legacy Act and the Raise a Glass to Ontario Act. 

He currently serves as the Government House Leader (Ontario) and Minister of Economic Development, Job Creation and Trade, representing the riding of Bay of Quinte.

Involvement in the local community is very important to Todd. He supports various charitable organizations such as, Operation Red Nose and the Alzheimer’s Society and participates in many local events and initiatives.

Born in New Brunswick, Todd moved to Belleville in the early 1990's and has called the Quinte-area his home ever since.  He now lives in the Oak Hills with his wife Tawnya, a local high school teacher, and two daughters, Payton and Reagan.
