InfoHelena Guergis has been an active community leader, volunteer and small business owner both in her hometown of Angus, the City of Barrie and in Toronto.

Helena’s political roots go deep – as a youngster she first assisted her grandfather in his campaign for re-election to the position of Reeve of Essa Township and she has continued to be politically active ever since.

She has championed the political voice of Ontario’s grassroots. Whether at the constituency level during provincial campaigns, including many by-elections, serving on the PC party of Ontario’s elected executive or while working as political staff at Queen’s Park.

Prior to beginning her public service career, Helena was a successful small business owner in Angus with her home finishing store a “Final Touch.” Helena was raised in a business family and worked alongside her father for many years at “George’s Furniture” in Angus.

Helena has a wealth of public service experience and understands how parliamentary democracy should work.
Helena worked on behalf of Simcoe residents for the past eight and a half years with Ontario’s recent PC government. She was an advisor to the Minister of Finance and the Minister of Education. She also worked for Barrie-Simcoe-Bradford MPP Joe Tascona.

Helena’s dedication to the quality of life in the region is evident in her volunteer experience. Helena has been a crisis intervention volunteer with the Barrie Rape Crisis Centre and a volunteer with the Barrie Literacy council. In 1992 she walked through Simcoe County to raise money and awareness about violence against women and children and she has helped raise funds for the Angus Food Bank.
