He currently serves as a Senior Advisor to the Associate Minister of Energy in Ontario (also the Member of Provincial Parliament for Bruce-Grey-Owen Sound).

Prior to joining the Provincial Government, Chad worked for his Member of Parliament as Legislative Assistant and served him in his role as Chair of the Agriculture and Agri-Food Committee, Transportation, Infrastructure, and Communities Committee, and Vice-Chair of the Public Safety and National Security Committee.

“The MPM program has truly helped me in my career on Parliament Hill and at Queen’s Park. It has provided me with an incredible amount of knowledge on political processes, the foundations of government, and strategies, as well as a number of practical skills that I now use every day.” – Chad Richards
