The Honourable Leela Aheer

Minister of Culture, Multiculturalism and Status of Women

Born in Edmonton and raised in Chestermere, where she is raising her family, Aheer is a proud wife and mother of two boys. Prior to entering politics, Aheer was a professional vocal coach and music teacher, who instructed singing in seven languages, owned and operated businesses as an entrepreneur, and was heavily involved in the arts, volunteerism and community service.

A key priority of the new government is to provide more protections for women, through initiatives like Clare’s Law. Aheer will continue to work hard to build an Alberta that regardless of who you are, who you love, where you come from, to whom you pray - is for generations to come, strong and free.
