Royal Galipeau is the Conservative Party candidate for Ottawa–Orléans. Mr. Galipeau’s family has been involved in community life and local politics for four generations. As such, Mr. Galipeau has inherited a genuine concern for public service and advocating for the betterment of his community.
Mr. Galipeau was elected as a citywide Councillor for Gloucester in 1982. During his time in office, he was instrumental in launching the city’s first corporate strategic plan, which was later lauded as a model for other municipalities. Another achievement of which he is proud is the designation more than 20 years ago of 500 acres as commercial and industrial land. This was intended for future employment centres in Ottawa–Orléans.
Always active in the community, Mr. Galipeau now serves as trustee and vice-chair of the Ottawa Public Library where he has helped bring safe Internet access to public libraries across the city. In addition, he has served on the Ottawa-Carleton Regional District Health Council, helping prepare a workable policy for the delivery of minority language health services in Ottawa. He has also served two terms as a director of TVOntario.
Most recently, Mr. Galipeau has been involved in the East-West Light Rail Transit Corridor Environmental Assessment Committee looking at implementing an improved transit system across the city of Ottawa.
A steadfast family man, Royal Galipeau has been married to his wife Anne for 30 years. They have four community-minded children, three sons and one daughter.
