Guy Lauzon was first elected as the MP for Stormont–Dundas–South Glengarry in 2004.
Lauzon served as National Conservative Caucus Chair for seven years. He stepped down from the position shortly after the 2015 election. Prior to that he was the Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Agriculture. Lauzon also served as a member of the multi-partisan Border Caucus and on the Conservative Caucus Policy Development Committee that prepared for the party’s 2005 policy convention.
Lauzon has presented two Private Member’s Bills in the House of Commons. The first, a move to restore the Executive Curl on the uniform of naval officers, received unanimous consent. The second, An Act to amend the Corrections and Conditional Release Act (accountability of offenders), aimed to improve restitution by offenders, passed the House in 2012 but did not pass the Senate.
Lauzon’s main policy issues are economic development, criminal justice and border control issues. He has a perfect attendance record for Parliamentary votes.
Before entering politics Lauzon worked as the general manager of Tri-County Protein Corp. He also worked as a public servant. He received a Government of Canada Merit Award for creating Canada’s first job fair with Human Resources Development Canada. Lauzon is also an entrepreneur and an active volunteer in his community.
He was born and raised in the riding where he still lives with his wife. He commutes to Parliament while the House of Commons is in session. During his time in government the riding has seen significant infrastructure funding, including the construction of Cornwall’s Benson Centre recreation complex and a new local RCMP detachment.
