Erika Barootes

Vice President, Western Canada

Look Inside

We can’t think of anyone better than Erika to be our first VP in Western Canada. She knows Alberta’s government inside and out—from the premier’s office to the heart of policy-making and most things in between. She knows politics, too. She was elected as the first president of the United Conservative Party and managed its digital content during the winning 2019 campaign. And she knows the private and not-for-profit sectors well, owning her own business, managing a large company’s brand, and being active in the community.
