As a forestry worker for the past nine years, Martin Chartrand understands the importance of resources management and ethical labour relations.

Martin’s involvement with the Green Party stems from his concerns about automation, substance abuse, affordable housing, internet connectivity, rural inclusion and climate change. 

He believes that climate action must be undertaken at all levels – federal, provincial, municipal and personal. Among the solutions he wants to champion in Parliament are investment in alternate modes of transportation and innovative green industries. 

Martin lives in Kipawa and is a band member of the Kebaowek First Nation. In his free time, he enjoys canoeing and fishing on Lake Kipawa and playing outdoor hockey.

Martin is honored to be a candidate in Abitibi—Témiscamingue for the Green Party of Canada. He aims to push forward on reconciliation, treaty rights, housing crisis, rural green development, ethical AI technologies applications and sustainable future for all Canadians.
