Scott Cyr has called northern Alberta home all of his life, learning the importance of hard work from his parents who worked as a mechanic and a bookkeeper. A graduate of the University of Lethbridge, Scott received his Bachelor’s Degree in Management with a double major in accounting and finance from the University of Lethbridge.
It was during his studies he met his wife, Megan, and the pair settled in Cold Lake and started an accounting practice from the ground up. Scott led with integrity and professionalism and saw the firm grow from one of the smallest firms within the City of Cold Lake to one of the larger firms within the Lakeland region.
On May 5, 2015 Scott was elected as Member of the Legislative Assembly (MLA) for Bonnyville – Cold Lake where he served in various roles holding the government accountable, and was able to bring forward legislation that protects victims of non-consensual distribution of intimate images.
At the end of his term, Scott stepped back to spend more time with his daughters, Amelia and Charlotte, and has served as a Senior Accounting Manager since.
Though he stepped back, Scott has remained engaged in discussions with community members and has seen a real desire across Alberta to see a change. He is ready to ensure that local voices are championed and Albertans are put first, which is why he is running again to be the candidate for Bonnyville – Cold Lake – St. Paul.
