Branden Leslie was first elected as the Member of Parliament for Portage-Lisgar on June 19, 2023. 


He has spent his entire career fighting for rural Manitoba values. He was an advisor in the Stephen Harper Government on key issues ranging from getting tough on crime, to protecting firearms rights, to standing up for our farmers. He has been an advocate for grain farmers and has been a leader in the fight against the carbon tax.


Branden knows how to defend our rural way of life because he has lived it. He grew up on his family farm just south of Portage. He attended Portage Collegiate Institute. And continues to live in that area today.


Branden’s priority as your Member of Parliament is protecting our rural way of life. He will continue to fight against the carbon tax. He will stand up for farmers. And he will protect the rights of law-abiding gun owners.


In his down time, Branden enjoys his lifelong love of sports. Whether he’s watching the Portage Terriers, refereeing minor hockey, or lacing up the skates for a rec game there’s a good chance that you will find Branden in a hockey rink. He is also an avid golfer.


Branden and his wife Cailey are the proud parents of their daughter Maeve.

As your MP, Branden is fighting for every community in Portage-Lisgar with the passion and energy that you deserve.
