Judith Moses is a candidate for the position of Member of Parliament in the federal electoral district of York—Simcoe, Ontario, Canada. She is the candidate of the Liberal Party of Canada. She is running against the incumbent Conservative MP and Minister for Democratic Reform, Peter Van Loan.

Early life

Moses was born February 23, 1950, on the Six Nations of the Grand River First Nation [cite web|url=http://www.cbc.ca/news/canadavotes/riding/211/candidate.html|title=York - Simcoe|work=Canada Votes|publisher=CBC.ca|accessdate=2008-09-27] near Brantford, Ontario on a dairy farm, the eldest of five children. After the farm became uneconomical, her father moved the family to Fort Erie, where he became an autoworker with Ford, while her mother started work as a nurse. She attended the University of Guelph, graduating with a degree in sociology in 1971.


Moses' career in the public service spanned over 30 years. She has worked in many fields, including agriculture, rural development, export financing, youth programming, labour market policy, international development, and intergovernmental affairs. She eventually served at the rank of Senior Assistant Deputy Minister in Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada and in the Privy Council Office.

Moses has worked with four Prime Ministers during her time at the Privy Council Office; she has also worked closely with federal cabinet Ministers, both Liberal and Conservative, in several government departments. Early in her career, she worked with the Honourable Hugh Faulkner, the Minister for Indian and Northern Affairs. While working in that department, she contributed to changes adopted into the "Indian Act" permitting the marriage of aboriginal women to non-aboriginal men without incurring the loss of their Indian Status. She also assisted in the development of joint strategies between businesses, labour unions, educational institutions, and government to help and retrain those workers affected by the signing of the Free Trade Agreement. She was also responsible for supporting the establishment of regional agencies to promote economic development in Atlantic Canada, Western Canada, Northern Ontario and Quebec, and for launching a national “Stay-in-School Campaign” to help reduce Canada’s then-30% high school dropout rate. Moses finished her government career in Toronto, where she advised the Ontario Government’s Cabinet Office on how to modernize its central agencies to better incorporate the principles of responsible, accountable, service-oriented government. She has since founded her own consulting firm, and is now a partner in McLaughlin-Moses Strategic Advisory Services Inc.

Community involvement

Moses also served on the Carleton University Board of Governors, as a Program Co-chair of the Governor General’s Study Conference, as a board member of the School of Dance in Ottawa, and as Vice-President of the Friends of the Canadian Museum of Civilization. She is past Chair of the Outreach Committee of St. John’s York Mills and former Church School Superintendent and Lay Administrator of St. Bartholomew’s Anglican Church in Ottawa. At present, Moses serves as the Vice Chair of HIPPY Canada which delivers pre-school literacy programs to immigrant and aboriginal families across Canada, including in the Jane-Finch area in Toronto.

Personal life

She is married to Peter Lyman and has three sons: Matthew, 26, Nathaniel, 22, and Sebastian, 19.
