InfoPeter Van Loan, PC, B.A., LL.B., M.A., M.Sc., is a Canadian politician. He is the member of Parliament for the electoral district of York—Simcoe and President of the Queen's Privy Council for Canada, Minister of Intergovernmental Affairs, and Minister for Sport.

Born in Niagara Falls, Ontario, Peter Van Loan is of Estonian heritage. His mother and grandparents fled Estonia during World War II and began a new life in Canada.

Van Loan was educated at the University of Toronto and holds a bachelor’s degree and two advanced degrees. Mr. Van Loan graduated from York University's Osgoode Hall Law School and was admitted to the Bar of Ontario in 1989.

Prior to his election to public office, Peter Van Loan was a partner and Chair of the Planning and Development Law Group at the law firm of Fraser Milner Casgrain LLP in Toronto, Ontario. Mr. Van Loan is also an Adjunct Professor of Planning at the University of Toronto.

Van Loan has been involved in politics since age fifteen. He eventually served as president of the Progressive Conservative Party of Ontario and then the Progressive Conservative Party of Canada. He resigned from the latter post in 2000 after a series of disagreements with its leader, Joe Clark.

Van Loan was a key figure in the unsuccessful attempt to convince Premier of New Brunswick Bernard Lord to run for the leadership of the federal Progressive Conservatives in late 2002. He was a key organizer in the "Yes" Campaign, led by Tory Leader Peter MacKay, to ratify the merger of the Progressive Conservative Party and the Canadian Alliance into the Conservative Party of Canada. Van Loan then again attempted to recruit Lord to run for the leadership of the new party, and again was unsuccessful.

Mr. Van Loan was first elected to the Canadian House of Commons in the 2004 election. As a Member of the Official Opposition, he was appointed critic for Human Resources and Skills Development. He was re-elected in the 2006 federal election and served as Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Foreign Affairs (Europe, Middle East, and the Americas).

On November 27th, 2006, Peter Van Loan was sworn in as a Privy Councillor and appointed the President of the Queen's Privy Council for Canada, Minister of Intergovernmental Affairs, and Minister for Sport, following the resignation of Michael Chong from those positions.
