The MP for Durham, Ont., O’Toole is retired from the Royal Canadian Air Force, and is a corporate lawyer. He is a founding member of the True Patriot Love Foundation, a charity that serves veterans and military families in Canada.

After being elected to political office in 2012, O’Toole served as parliamentary secretary to the minister of international trade before being named the minister of veterans affairs, by then prime minister Stephen Harper.

He was the Conservative shadow minister of foreign affairs before clinching the party leadership position last August, taking 57% of the votes on the third and final ballot over his challenger Peter MacKay.

In his acceptance speech, O’Toole, 47, vowed to unite the party and hold Conservative values while still broadening the party base.
