About Mike

MP Mike Morrice is inspired by the great things people can accomplish when we genuinely listen to one another, look to find common ground, and prioritize future generations. 

Prior to his election, Mike founded Sustainable Waterloo Region, co-created ClimateActionWR, piloted Canada’s first Green Economy Hub, later founded Green Economy Canada to share this work across the country. 

Since his election in 2021 – the first Green MP ever elected in Ontario – Mike has used his platform to amplify his community’s concerns. This includes his advocacy and progress made in ending legislated poverty for people with disabilities, urgent action to address the climate crisis, and to addressing the unaffordability of housing. Mike is the Green Party of Canada’s critic for both housing and disability inclusion. 

Mike has participated in COP26 in Glasgow and COP27 in Egypt as a member of Canada’s delegation. He has worked to address wealth inequality through dedicated advocacy for the Canada Disability Benefit and interim Disability Emergency Response Benefit, and to improve housing affordability through his Private Members Motion 71, which would end tax exemptions enjoyed by corporate investors. He has also advocated for election reform, calling for a citizens’ assembly on election reform through his Private Members Motion 76 and his subsequent work with MP Lisa Marie Barron. To address the concurrent climate crisis and affordability crisis, Mike has put forth Private Members Motion 92, which would place a windfall tax on the excess profits of fossil fuel companies, allocating the resulting funds towards proven climate solutions and measures to increase affordability for Canadians.
