Coreen Corcoran

Member Profile

Coreen Corcoran was elected to the position of Deputy Leader on October 24th, 2021. She served as Campaign Director from 2019 to 2021. Coreen was the Ontario Libertarian Party candidate for Nepean-Carleton during the Ontario Election in 2014. She is currently the president of the OLP Ottawa-Vanier constituency association. She also ran as the Libertarian Party of Canada candidate for Ottawa-Vanier in 2015, and for Ottawa-Centre in 2019.

Coreen feels that most political parties are focused on an idealized version of a middle-class family that no longer exists. What the main parties fail to realize is that the demographics across Canada are changing with more households headed by single people and seniors. Handouts and tax breaks for families don’t apply to their lifestyles. What this province needs in order to get out of debt and back on track is less government regulation and interference in our everyday lives. Entrepreneurs shouldn’t have to deal with red-tape at multiple levels of government. Consumers should have access to more choices in healthcare, education, and service providers. 

Coreen has lived in Ottawa most of her life. She grew up in Ottawa South and attended Carleton University where she received a Bachelor of Arts Honours degree in Mass Communications and Film Studies. In 2016, she completed a Master of Arts with a specialization in Global Change. She loves to travel and has visited many cities and countries. Each one has given her a new perspective on the way people around the world live. In some cases, it has reinforced how lucky we are to live in Canada. She shares her home with her husband, their dog, and two cats.
