Dan and his wife Leigh farm grains, oil seeds, and specialty crops near Justice, Manitoba. His past farming experience also include raising cattle, sheep, and poultry.
Prior to being elected as Member of Parliament in 2019, Dan served as the President of Keystone Agriculture Producers (KAP) since 2015 after a four-year commitment as Vice-President. Prior to this, Dan fulfilled a position at KAP from 2001 – 2006. He was one of the founding members of the KAP Young Farmers Committee and was the Western representative on the Canadian Young Farmers Forum. At the national level, Dan represented KAP on the Canadian Federation of Agriculture board.
Additionally, Dan has served his community as a school trustee for Rolling River School Division, and as a board member for the Manitoba Sustainable Energy Association, the Mid-Assiniboine Conservation District, and the Assiniboine River Basin Initiative (ARBI). Dan was also a founding member of Elton Energy Co-operative, a provincial renewable energy initiative.
Dan is a graduate of the University of Manitoba’s Agriculture Diploma program (1984), and was honoured by the faculty in 2013 with a certificate of merit for his contributions in the agriculture industry.
Dan holds a power engineer certification and has worked in the fertilizer industry for 17 years. Other past work experience includes working for MNP as well as the Manitoba Farm Mediation Board.
Since elected, Dan has focused his work on representing rural Canadians in Parliament. In May 2021, Dan Mazier made national headlines when he introduced legislation to amend the Telecommunications Act in an effort to end the misleading speed claims by Canadian internet companies. Mazier’s Bill C-299 received a vast amount of credible endorsements from industry experts and Canadians who agreed with his notion that too many Canadians are being cheated and misled by large internet companies. He continues to fight for better cellular services in Canada citing the direct threat this lack of service has to public safety.
Dan has also been credited for working tirelessly on federal agricultural policy which included his work to remove the carbon tax from farm fuels and end the unfair tax treatment for family farms and small businesses who sell to their family.
Mazier also received much support from his constituents for working to reduce rural crime in Canada. His most notable work on this was when he publically seconded Bill C-289 which aimed at amending the Criminal Code to create an aggravating factor that a judge can consider at sentencing if the crime was directed at a property or persons who were vulnerable because of remoteness from emergency medical or police services.
