Garnett Genuis is the Member of Parliament for Sherwood Park-Fort Saskatchewan. First elected to Parliament in 2015, MP Genuis is a long-time resident of Strathcona County, where he currently resides with his wife Rebecca, a family doctor, and their five children.

As a Parliamentarian, Genuis has developed a reputation for being outspoken and principled. He has served in various roles in the Conservative Shadow Cabinet since 2019 and was reappointed in 2022 by Party Leader Pierre Poilievre to the post of Shadow Minister of International Development. Genuis is also currently the Vice-Chair of the Foreign Affairs Committee and a member of the Standing Committee on Public Accounts. He previously served as the Vice-Chair of the Special Committee on Canada-China Relations and worked as a member of the Committee on Citizenship & Immigration.

Genuis has been active on many high-profile domestic and international human rights issues. His interest in human rights was shaped by the experience of his grandmother, a Holocaust survivor. Genuis is also a passionate advocate for free speech, for increased efforts to combat violence against women, and for Canadian energy. He is the sponsor of Bill C-257, a bill to add “political belief and activity” to the Canadian Human Rights Act as prohibited grounds of discrimination, and Motion 57, a motion to promote bystander awareness and intervention training to combat violence.

Genuis holds degrees from Carleton University and the London School of Economics. He runs a weekly podcast called “Resuming Debate”, and spends any spare time reading history books and playing strategy games with his children. The family also includes a Newfoundlander dog named Grace.
