First-generation Canadian, Alison Gohel was born and raised in Saskatchewan. After spending some time abroad, she came back to Canada choosing Ontario as her home base. Over the past 10 years, Alison has worked as a Manager in the Tax & Legal department of multinational professional service firms. She holds a Bachelor of Arts, a Bachelor of Laws, and completed her Master of Laws degree in France, where she met her husband, Pierre-Yves, while working for an international law firm in Paris. Fluent in both English and French, she is also currently enrolled in a part-time LLM program at Osgoode Hall Law School.
A dedicated leader anchored in strong values, Alison has always believed in public service and has pivoted to devote a significant amount of her time to advance this passion. Her volunteer hours and political aspirations began at the age of eight, where she canvassed alongside her parents in Regina, Saskatchewan for Ralph Goodale of the Liberal Party. Over 30 years later, Alison is focusing on what really matters: the idea that politics, at its core, is simple—it is about people.
Almost a decade ago, Alison and her husband chose Oakville as their home. They knew it was the perfect place to fully immerse themselves, to build a life, and to raise their family. A mother of two, Alexandre and Eloise, Alison and her family make the most of their evenings and weekends with their children in our community. She will never stop working hard for the people of Oakville and building a better community for all.
I would be honoured to represent the people of Oakville. I am running to ensure that our education system is the best it can be, that our healthcare system remains strong , and that our residents and business community get the tools they need to thrive. Alison Gohel
