From Parliament Hill: New MP looks forward to serving region

Web Lead

During the recent federal election on May 2, I was elected to represent the constituency of Kootenay-Columbia. On May 25, I was sworn in as your representative in this 41st session of Parliament. It has been an exciting time and a tremendously busy time. There is a lot to learn and plenty of meetings to attend to get up to speed.

It is a great honour and privilege to serve you in Ottawa and equally important that you are able to contact me on any federal issues that may arise for you.

I have now established my offices in Cranbrook and Ottawa. I therefore provide you with contact information as follows (mail to a member of Parliament is postage free):

Ottawa Office: 620 La Promenade, Ottawa, ON, K1A 0A6. Phone: 613-995-7246. Fax: 613-996-9923. Email:

Cranbrook Office: 100B Cranbrook St. N., Cranbrook, BC, V1C 3P9. Phone: 250-417-2250 or 1-800-668-5522. Fax: 250-417-2253.


Kootenay-Columbia is a large riding with a diverse range of interests. Whether it be mining, forestry, tourism or agriculture, it is sought after for those who wish to work and play in a great place we call home. The opportunities that avail us in our region are endless.

Thank you for the confidence you have shown in me and I look forward to serving you over the next four years.

David Wilks is the member of Parliament for the Kootenay-Columbia federal riding.
