Premier Stephen McNeil

Premier Stephen McNeil attributes his core values and strong commitment to public service to his large, close-knit family.

Stephen is the 12th of 17 siblings who were born and raised in Nova Scotia's beautiful Annapolis Valley.

Before becoming involved in politics, Stephen graduated from Nova Scotia Community College and put down roots in Bridgetown, where he owned and operated a small business for 18 years.

He was inspired to serve his community by his late mother, Theresa, who was the first female sheriff in Canada.

Stephen was elected to the Legislative Assembly to serve the people of Annapolis in 2003. After winning re-election in 2006, he became leader of the Nova Scotia Liberal party in 2007.

Stephen served as leader of the official opposition for four years before being elected Premier on Oct. 8, 2013.

In his election-night speech, Stephen said he was inspired by the families he met while campaigning across the province.

'You have told me about your hopes and dreams for a Nova Scotia where your children and grandchildren can prosper. I share that dream,' he said.
Stephen lives in the Annapolis Valley with his wife Andrea. They have two grown children, Colleen and Jeffrey.
