Jason Copping, the MLA for Calgary-Varsity elected in 2019, is seeking re-election as the UCP candidate. Jason has served as the Minister of Labour & Immigration and is currently the Minister of Health.

Key accomplishments include: passing the Fairness for Newcomers Act to make it easier for credentials recognition, reaching a multi-year agreement with Alberta’s doctors, passing the Continuing Care Act to provide better care for seniors, launching the Modernizing Alberta’s Primary Care System initiative improving access to family clinics, and significantly expanding capacity across our entire health care system.

In addition, Jason has over 20 years of corporate senior management experience in labour relations, human resources and corporate affairs. He was a business owner and taught at the University of Calgary and the University of Lethbridge.

Jason is running to continue to build on the progress made in Alberta over the last four years ensuring that Albertan students have career opportunities here in our province and to continue to improve the health care system so that Albertans get care when and where they need it.
