Kristen Oliver is in her second term as City Councillor for the Westfort Ward. She is also the Senior Advisor - Municipal & Stakeholder Engagement for Enbridge. Prior to working with Enbridge, Kristen was the executive director of the Northwestern Ontario Municipal Association (NOMA), and honed her political skills working with both orders of the provincial and municipal government.

A graduate of Confederation College, Kristen was pleased to return to her alma mater to serve as a Board of Governor. A dedicated member of her community, Kristen has offered her skills in assisting many important volunteer organizations. She is past president of Leadership Thunder Bay, a role that helped define her as a community builder.  

Born and raised in Thunder Bay, Kristen and her husband Rick are raising their two sons in the neighbourhood where they grew up. While she definitely enjoys the warmth and fun that summer brings, come winter, she is a dedicated hockey mom and can be found cheering on her boys at one of the many rinks in Thunder Bay.

Kristen is very engaged with the Westfort ward, and encourages her constituents to contact her at anytime to discuss issues or concerns.
