Tony Van Bynen is a dedicated community builder with a proven record of public service, and is your current Member of Parliament for Newmarket—Aurora.
A resident of Newmarket for over 40 years, Tony and his wife Roxanne raised their two daughters here, and now get to see their grandchildren grow-up in the community.
Community service, volunteerism, and helping those who need it most is what drives Tony everyday. He and Roxanne have volunteered at the Southlake Hospital and the Inn from the Cold, for over 10 years. They also deliver food for the Newmarket Food Bank, and Tony was instrumental in creating Belinda’s Place, which is a multi-purpose facility for homeless and at-risk women.
He has also had the privilege to serve as the Mayor of Newmarket for 12 years. During that time, community building is what guided Tony on his mission to revitalize Main Street, renew the historic Old Town Hall, and build the Riverwalk Commons so youth and families can enjoy great public places right here at home.
Through his 30-year career in banking, and past service as the President of the Chamber of Commerce, Tony understands what local businesses need to thrive and grow. He’s delivered innovative solutions to help local businesses owners have a path to success, including creating the Envi broadband network so businesses in our community have ultra-high speed connectivity.
Tony ran to be your Member of Parliament because he understands that we need to protect a healthy environment, invest in healthcare, and offer real help to families in our community. He is committed to working with Justin Trudeau to continue to grow our middle class, and he will never stop working for the people of Newmarket—Aurora.
