Jennifer Bowes has won a reputation as a dedicated activist, organizer and MLA for Saskatoon University.
Born in Saskatoon, Jennifer grew up in Waldheim and attended Queen's University where she completed a degree in psychology. She went on to work at Saskatoon Correctional Centre, the Ministry of Social Services and the Elizabeth Fry Society, where she was elected director, secretary and eventually vice-president. A passionate advocate for causes near and far, she also served on the Board of QUINT Development Corporation and CUSO International. The former enabled her to help strengthen the economic and social well-being of Saskatoon’s core neighbourhoods, and the latter to empower women in Myanmar to assume positions of leadership at the local and national levels.
