Megan Mitton was elected MLA for the Memramcook-Tantramar riding in 2018. She became the first Green MLA to be elected in this riding, the first woman elected as a Green MLA in New Brunswick history, and one of the first 10 Green parliamentarians elected in Canada. During the last legislative sitting, Megan was member of the Standing Committees on Public Accounts, Law Amendments and Private Bills, and Social Policy. She was also the Advocate on matters of Wellness, Education, and Creating Resilient and Inclusive Communities.
She grew up in Sackville, NB and graduated from Tantramar Regional High School. She then earned her Bachelor of Arts at McGill University in Montreal, QC, where she studied international development, political science and women’s studies. After several years away, Megan and her husband, Steve Geier, decided to return to New Brunswick. They currently reside in their hometown of Sackville with their young daughter. From 2016 to 2018, Megan served as a Sackville Town Councillor.
Megan is passionate about addressing the systemic problems we face in New Brunswick, like challenges our health-care system and the climate crisis, by working with our communities to find solutions and listening to the voices who are marginalized by our society. Her dedication to building resilient and strong communities is what first led her to seek the nomination from the Green Party of NB for Memramcook-Tantramar in 2014.
