Meara is a mother, musician, community leader, lawyer and MLA for Regina Elphinstone-Centre.
Prior to being elected in 2020, she fought for some of Canada’s most vulnerable as a public defender. Her advocacy for greater Legal Aid funding and for the Justice for Our Stolen Children Camp, which protested racism against Indigenous communities in Saskatchewan, landed her on the list of Canada’s 25 most influential lawyers in 2019. Also a strong advocate for the Arts, Meara holds a degree in music from McGill, where she won the National Music Competition. She currently resides in her hometown of Regina with her partner Nick and their sons Lew and Éamon.
