Finding Inspiration in Every Turn

The Honourable Scott Brison was first elected to Canada's House of Commons as the Member of Parliament for Kings–Hants in 1997. 

Before entering public life, Scott had extensive private sector experience as an entrepreneur and investment banker. He served as Vice-President of a Canadian investment bank and as Chairman of SeaFort Capital Inc., a Canadian private equity firm.

Scott served as President of the Treasury Board, and as a member of the key Cabinet Committee on Agenda, Results and Communications that tracks progress on the government’s priorities; the Cabinet Committee on Inclusive Growth, Opportunities and Innovation that considers strategies to promote inclusive economic growth, opportunity, employment, and social security; the Cabinet Committee on Open and Transparent Government; and the ad-hoc Cabinet Committee on Defence Procurement.

During his years in opposition, he notably served as Vice-Chair of the House of Commons Standing Committee on Finance.  On the international scene, he served as a member of the Trilateral Commission, and he was named by the World Economic Forum of Davos, Switzerland, as one of its Young Global Leaders.

In Paul Martin’s government, Scott served as Minister of Public Works and Government Services, and Receiver General of Canada from 2004 to 2006 and previous to that as Parliamentary Secretary to the Prime Minister with special emphasis on Canada-U.S. relations.

Scott didn't just manage departments; he transformed them. One of his landmark initiatives was the modernization of government procurement policies, ensuring transparency and efficiency. This overhaul led to significant cost savings and established a blueprint for future administrations.

In his role as President of the Treasury Board under Justin Trudeau, Scott tackled the ambitious project of digitizing government services. His strategy was twofold: enhance accessibility for Canadians and streamline internal processes.

But Scott’s impact extended far beyond digitization; he was also the driving force behind implementing rigorous financial controls, advocating for transparency and accountability in every aspect of government spending.

During complex federal negotiations and economic uncertainties, Scott’s leadership was a beacon of stability, reflecting a meticulous commitment to fiscal responsibility.

As one of the first openly gay federal politicians in Canada, Scott also used his platform to champion the rights of the LGBTQ+ community. He was not just a policymaker; he was a role model.

Scott's courage and outspokenness contributed to a broader societal shift, making the political arena more inclusive and helping to break down barriers of discrimination and prejudice.

Scott currently serves as Bank of Montreal's vice-chair of investment and corporate banking and is a member of the Canadian American Business Council's advisory board.

Alongside his husband, Maxime St. Pierre, and their twin daughters, Claire and Rose, Scott currently fulfills his most important role as a husband and father
