Joyce Bateman

Joyce Bateman was delighted to have been selected by the people of Winnipeg South Centre to serve as their Member of Parliament in 2011, and is eager to seek their support again. She is a proud member of Stephen Harper’s team and offers the proven leadership needed in an uncertain world.

Joyce is dedicated to serving the constituency of Winnipeg South Centre. Before her election to Parliament, she served the community for over 10 years as a school trustee. Joyce has worked tirelessly to make life better for her constituents. As an example, she recently announced funding to build the Waverley Underpass. When completed, this project will put an end to long delays at the Waverley Street rail crossing. In June of 2014, Joyce passed her first Private Member’s Bill, C-627. This bill will make railway crossings in Winnipeg South Centre safer for children and families by making it easier to have unsafe crossings closed down.

In the last Parliament, Joyce was asked by the Prime Minister to serve on the Standing Committee on Public Accounts, the Standing Committee on the Status of Women, and most recently has served on the Standing Committee on Finance. To all these roles, she brings her skills as a Chartered Accountant.

Joyce has served as the vice-chair of the All-Party Arts Caucus, and represented the Conservative government on the Aerospace Caucus and the Insurance Caucus. She has been a member of several Interparliamentary groups and served on the executive committee of the Canada-Israel Interparliamentary Group and the Canada-United Kingdom Interparliamentary Association.

Joyce and her husband Darrell have a son and a daughter. Her son is studying law and her daughter is attending high school in the community.

When combined with the existing Pension Income Credit that […]


Budget Balanced A Year Early!

Our Conservative government has a strong record of economic and fiscal management. Our government achieved a balanced budget last year – one full year ahead of schedule. This is good for our economy and good for Canadian families. Spending beyond our means, as Justin’s Liberals and Thomas Mulcair’s NDP propose, would lead to permanent deficits, […]


Cutting Taxes For Small Businesses

We will also create banned travel zones in […]


Keeping More Money In Your Pocket

We announced our plan to cut payroll taxes by over 20 percent in 2017 and protect Canadian jobs from the dangerous Employment Insurance and CPP tax hikes promised by both Justin Trudeau and Mulcair’s NDP. By dramatically reducing payroll taxes, Canadian workers will see their take-home pay increase and businesses – especially small businesses – […]


Helping Families Save For Their Children’s Education

A re-elected Conservative government would provide more support to hardworking Canadian families saving for their children’s post-secondary education. Our Conservative Government has consistently cut taxes and put more money back into the pockets of every Canadian family. This includes significant support to help with the costs of a child’s future education, including establishing the Canada […]


Supporting Canada’s Mining Sector

Responsible resource development creates jobs, fuels growth and promotes prosperity across the country. The mining sector is particularly critical to Canada’s economy with over 380,000 Canadians employed in mining and thousands more employed indirectly. Since 2006, our government has helped to support mining exploration, investment and jobs through the Mineral Exploration Tax Credit. We announced […]


Expanding Broadband to Rural Communities

In today’s digital economy, access to the internet is essential to create jobs, realize economic opportunities and connect Canadians to online services.

Rural Canadians expect and deserve […]
