Robin Martin is For the People.

Robin Martin is the MPP for Eglinton-Lawrence, a riding in which she has lived and been active for over 20 years.

As a mother of a child on the autism spectrum, she is a passionate advocate for quality education that ensures that no child is left behind and that values the different gifts each child has. Robin believes that a government that wastes money is a government that wastes the precious opportunities of its people,present and future. Moral, responsible government should never forget that it serves the people, not the other way around.

Robin loves her community and is a proud volunteer for numerous causes and charities. One of her proudest achievements was working with CCSIF to get a universal cancer-screening program adopted by the Ontario Government – the first of its kind in Canada. At a personal level, Robin has been married for 28 years to her high school sweetheart, Jon Martin, and has a son and a daughter.

Robin holds a Bachelor of Laws from the University of Toronto. Prior to that, she earned her Bachelor of Arts and Master of Arts from McGill University. She practiced litigation for over a decade at Osler and Lenczner. She has also worked as a policy advisor for the Ontario Ministry of Health.
