Born and raised in Fort McMurray, Laila Goodridge understands what’s important to the people of Fort McMurray-Conklin and what makes this region so special.

Laila spent five years working in the oil and gas sector for Syncrude and North American Construction before deciding to pursue her passion for politics and serving Albertans. Laila served as an advisor to Members of Parliament, Federal Ministers and most recently has served Members of the Legislative Assembly of Alberta in Edmonton. Further, she served here in Fort McMurray as the Disaster Recovery Specialist for MLAs Brian Jean and Tany Yao.

Between Laila’s experience in the oil and gas industry, history of public service, and strong conservative record, she is the right voice to strengthen the United Conservative Party caucus and build on the strong legacy in this riding as its MLA. 

Fluent in both of Canada’s Official Languages, Laila earned her Bachelor of Arts, with a major in political studies, at the University of Alberta’s francophone Campus Saint Jean.
