Kailey Vokes

Director of Policy, Office of Ontario's Minister of Transportation

Degrees:MPM/13

Kailey Vokes has been appointed Senior Policy Advisor to Ontario’s Finance Minister, Vic Fedeli. In this role, Kailey ensures that policy development is consistent with the government’s mandate and identifies policy areas that the Minister can advance on behalf of the government. Some of the files she is responsible for include gaming policy, pensions and retirement security, and the regulation of automobile insurance.

After graduating from the Political Management program, Kailey worked as a policy and communications advisor to the federal government before accepting a position as Government Relations Advisor with Desjardins Insurance. During the 2018 provincial election, she ran Caroline Mulroney’s campaign in York-Simcoe. Kailey has been involved in conservative politics as a volunteer for a decade and is currently the President of the York-Simcoe PC Association.

Vokes credits much of her success to the MPM program, which she says provided her with “hands-on, realistic instruction and assignments” that prepared her “for the intensity of working in political offices.” She also praised the program as an “incredible experience” that allowed her to “build lasting friendships across party lines.”
