Jean-Luc Cooke knows that to tackle the challenges facing Nepean, we need leaders that believe in the capacity of Canadians to create and innovate.

Jean-Luc wants to unleash the potential in our communities. Appointed to the Green Party's shadow cabinet in 2010 as Small Business critic, Jean-Luc needs no convincing that community-based businesses are the economic backbone of our country.

After graduating from Carleton University with a degree in engineering, Jean-Luc created CertainKey Inc., an information security consultancy firm. Jean-Luc is aware that we need to act now to create a brighter future for our citizens; that is why he has chaired the Green Party's Pension Policy Committee.

Jean-Luc has deep roots in Nepean, and is connected to the collective desires and needs of the people. Married in Barrhaven/Fallowfield Village, along with his wife and two daughters –aged seven years and five months– he calls Bells Corners home.

Full of energy, understanding, and integrity, Jean-Luc Cooke seeks to be the people's voice in our national parliament and to help his fellow citizens shape the democratic process to meet their own aspirations.

The Green Party of Canada is excited to have Jean-Luc Cooke as our candidate in the riding of Nepean.
