Aleana Young, MLA for the Constituency of Regina University

Stronger Together

Aleana Young was elected the MLA for Regina University in October 2020.

She serves as the Critic for several portfolios including Economy and Jobs, Sask Power, Trade and Export, and Forestry. In the Legislature, she holds the role of Whip.

Prior to taking office, she spent two terms as a Regina Public School Board Trustee where she was a tireless advocate for high-quality education for Saskatchewan students and inclusive classrooms. Young also served as Vice President of the Saskatchewan School Boards’ Association, where she advocated for all 27 school boards in the province and for a local voice in education. She believes strongly in local democracy.

In addition to being an MLA, Aleana is a small business owner operating a cheese shop in the Cathedral neighbourhood, and she’s proud of being an entrepreneur. In her occasional spare time, she loves running around Wascana Lake. She and her husband are parents to a new baby and enthusiastic toddler and they all enjoy the outdoors, reading, and culinary adventures…!

Aleana Young, MLA Regina University

Economic Stability

“The numbers don’t lie. Since Scott Moe took office exactly six years ago, the Sask. Party has been worse at creating jobs than every other provincial government in Canada.”
Aleana Young

As the Opposition lead for Economy and Jobs, I track and advocate for a stronger economy. StatCan’s data continues to show concerning trends: worst job creation record among provinces, stagnant wages, and diminishing purchasing power. In 2023, the Sask. Party government’s capital investment is only 55% of 2014 levels. Under Scott Moe and the Sask. Party government, Saskatchewan’s five-year immigration retention rate has dropped 20% - this means that for every 100 newcomers to our province, 42 leave. This is concerning for families, employers, and our economic prospects. 

I’ll keep fighting for a strong economy. 

Carla Beck and I continue to hear that affordability and cost of living is the number one concern. Our team is continuing to push for real, dependable, affordability relief. Our priority in this spring sitting of the Legislature is to push the government to axe the gas tax, which could save hard working families $0.15/L – tomorrow.  

In six years, Premier Scott Moe has nearly doubled Saskatchewan’s debt; Scott Moe has one of the worst fiscal records in Saskatchewan history, posting 5 deficit budgets. And yet, our health and education systems are starved while we’ve seen splurges on lavish trips to Dubai, Germany, and India – all with public funds. I pushed for transparent documentation on the $1.5 million price-tag. I also called for an expedited investigation into rates the province paid for a social services client’s stay at a motel owned by a government member. 

“Saskatchewan has the resources, the work ethic, all the ingredients to boom. This province should be moving forward. Sadly, for far too many folks, it feels like we’re spinning our tires.”

Sitting at the start of year three of COVID is certainly not where any of us want to be. People are tired and running thin on resilience. I'm worried what the remainder of this winter will bring for peoples lives and livelihoods. It goes without saying that supporting seniors, neighbours in the disability community, frontline workers, and small business is important now, more than ever. I hope you and your loved ones have stayed safe and aren't too frustrated or beaten down by reality.
