Meet MP Greg McLean
Greg McLean is the Conservative Member of Parliament for Calgary Centre.
In Parliament, Greg serves as the Shadow Minister for Natural Resources & Canadian Northern Economic Development Agency (CanNor) under Conservative Leader Erin O'Toole. Prior to leading the Conservative Natural Resources portfolio, Greg served as the Deputy Shadow Minister for National Revenue (tax policy issues). Greg is the Vice-Chair of the Standing Committee on Natural Resources; he previously served on the Justice and Human Rights Committee.
Before being elected as MP for Calgary Centre in 2019, Greg worked as a financial professional for 20 years. His work put him in close contact with Alberta’s vital oil and gas sector and with technology start-ups, giving him a first-hand understanding of what it takes for hard-working Calgarians to invest, risk, build, and succeed. It’s the entrepreneurial spirit that drives our province and helps make our city great. Greg works hard to use his financial background to bring on-the-ground expertise in finance, business and resource development to Parliament. As a new MP, Greg has spent time working with his colleagues refining policy on resource development, including the significant strides the industry has taken toward sustainable development, and the many reasons that Canadians should prefer Canadian oil over environmentally and ethically inferior imports.
Greg has a Bachelor of Commerce Degree from the University of Alberta, and an MBA from the Richard Ivey School of Business at the University of Western Ontario.
Together, Greg and his wife Ruth Pogue have a combined family of four sons. Greg is a big music fan, and enjoys skiing, hiking, biking, and everything else Calgary and the Rocky Mountains has to offer.
