Who is MLA Jackie?

Jackie Armstrong-Homeniuk was first elected as the Member of the Legislative Assembly for Fort Saskatchewan-Vegreville on April 16, 2019. As a small business owner, she was concerned with the direction the province was heading in, and wanted to make a difference, which is what inspired her to run in the election.

A long-term resident in the riding, Ms. Armstrong-Homeniuk and her husband have raised their two children in the community and are proud to call East-Central Alberta home.

She believes in education, and has taken many economic development and businesses courses. She also has done post-secondary studies at Grant MacEwan University as well as the University of Calgary. She also is a journeyman hairstylist as well and owned and operated her own salon for approximately 34 years and has experience in the insurance industry.

Ms. Armstrong-Homeniuk wasted no time in getting to work in sponsoring a Private Member’s Bill-201, called the “Protection of Students with Life-Threatening Allergies Act”. Her bill was passed unanimously in the 30th legislature, which was the first bill that was passed by the current government.

She has served as the chair for the Advisory Council on Alberta-Ukraine Relations, the chair for the Skilled Trades Caucus, and sat on the North Caucus, Capital Region Caucus and the Energy Caucus and was a member of the Skills for Jobs Taskforce. She also chairs the Resource Sustainability and Development Member Policy Committee. Her extensive business background, along with her grasp of the Ukrainian culture make her an ideal member of the council. Ms. Armstrong-Homeniuk was also a member of the Premier's Council on Charities and Civil Society which has created the report on Woman, Economic Recovery in Alberta. In addition to all these committees, she was also the Alberta Representative of the Commonwealth Women’s Parliamentary Association.

She served as a member of the Standing Committee on Public Accounts, the Standing Order on Privileges and Elections, Standing Orders and Printing and the Standing Committee on Alberta’s Economic Future.

Prior to being elected, Ms. Armstrong-Homeniuk has made it a point to be active in the community. She has been active in working with several community charities and non-profits, such as local food banks. She is an active volunteer and philanthropist, as well as a passion for people. She has worked with local Rotary Clubs, Chambers of Commerce and many other organizations, which she is happy to give her knowledge and time to.

When Ms. Armstrong-Homeniuk has some free time, she enjoys spending it in the outdoors and with her family and pets. She is the 914th Member to be sworn into the Legislative Assembly of Alberta.
