She was re-elected on April 16, 2019, as the MLA for the newly formed riding of Chestermere-Strathmore. Born in Edmonton and raised in Chestermere, where she is raising her family, Aheer is a proud wife and mother of two boys. Before entering politics, Aheer was a
professional vocal coach and music teacher who instructed singing in 7 languages and owned and operated a successful music studio for twenty-four years in Chestermere and Calgary, where she was heavily involved in arts, volunteerism, and community service. Previously serving as the Opposition Critic for Children’s Services and Status of Women, Aheer brings her experience as a legislator to her new portfolio. MLA Aheer was the Minister of Culture, Multiculturalism and Status of Women, where for the first time in Canada, Women’s Entrepreneurship Day was proclaimed in February 2019. A key priority of the new government
is to provide more protections for women through initiatives like Clare’s Law. Aheer will continue to work hard to build an Alberta that, regardless of who you are, who you love, where you come from, to whom you pray – is for generations to come, strong and free.
