Premier Stephen McNeil attributes his core values and strong commitment to public service to his large, close-knit family.
Stephen is the 12th of 17 siblings who were born and raised in Nova Scotia’s beautiful Annapolis Valley.
After graduating from the Nova Scotia Community College, he owned and operated a small business in Bridgetown for 18 years.
Stephen’s inspiration to serve his community came from his late mother, Theresa, the first female sheriff in Canada.
Stephen lives with his wife Andrea in the house where he grew up in Upper Granville, Annapolis County. They have two grown children, Colleen and Jeffrey.
