Peggy Sattler, MPP for London West
Since 2000, Peggy Sattler has been bringing people together to get results in London.
She was first elected as the Member of Provincial Parliament for London West in a by-election in 2013, and re-elected in 2014, 2018 and 2022. She is the Official Opposition Critic for Colleges & Universities and the Chief Opposition Whip.
At Queen’s Park, Peggy leads positive change for Londoners and all Ontarians. She won the fight for paid leave for domestic and sexual violence, which is now law in Ontario, and she is working to secure paid sick days for every worker. In response to community concerns, Peggy has also proposed new laws to improve health care oversight, combat Islamophobia, protect vulnerable workers, keep graphic images out of mailboxes, and more.
She has been a tireless advocate for better health care, improved mental health services, stronger support for people with disabilities, real housing solutions, and an end to gender-based violence, and she is a long-time champion for post-secondary work-integrated learning.
Prior to her election as MPP, Peggy served as a Trustee on the Thames Valley District School Board for 13 years, including two terms as Board chair. As Director of Policy at a London research firm, Peggy led provincial and national research studies with a focus on post-secondary education and workforce development.
She holds a Masters of Education from Western University, and is also a graduate of McMaster University and Fanshawe College.
