MPP Hon Indira Naidoo-Harris

God and Father of all, we come to you today on behalf of Hon. Indira Naidoo-Harris. We pray that today she will know the power of the presence of God Almighty, and that her life will be blessed as You work through her in helping the people of Ontario. We pray that she and her family will know the protection of the loving arms of God and that they will rejoice in all You have for them.  AMEN!

Indira Naidoo-Harris was first elected to the Ontario legislature in 2014 as the MPP for Halton.  Naidoo-Harris currently serves as Minister of Women's Issues and Minister Responsible for Early Years and Child Care.   

She was born in Durban, South Africa. Her family immigrated to Canada to pursue the dreams they could not achieve under apartheid. They settled in central Alberta, where Naidoo-Harris grew up in a small, rural town. She later earned a B.A. in Political Science at the University of Lethbridge.
After graduate work at the University of Alberta, Naidoo-Harris moved to the U.S. for two years, where she began a career in journalism by working briefly for NBC and PBS. She went on to build a career as a writer, reporter, producer and news anchor at the international, national and regional levels.
She moved to Ontario in the 1990s to work for CBC-TV’s The National and Midday News, and since then she has anchored for CBC Newsworld, CBC national newscasts and CTV Newsnet, as well as for local stations CBC Toronto, CBC Ottawa, TVO and OMNI Television. Naidoo-Harris has won numerous awards for her work and volunteerism in national and international causes.
Naidoo-Harris has lived in Halton for more than 20 years, and has sat on the Board of Directors for the Reel World Film Festival, the Nelson Mandela Children's Fund of Canada and the Journalism Advisory Council at the University of Western Ontario.
