Mayor Anthony Housefather

11th mayor of Côte Saint-Luc 

 

Anthony Housefather was first elected Mayor of Côte Saint-Luc on November 7, 2005. He was re-elected on October 2, 2009 and again on October 2, 2013. Prior to being elected Mayor, Anthony was a city councillor for 11 years.

Anthony has two law degrees from McGill University and an MBA from Concordia University and serves as Executive Vice President Corporate Affairs and General Counsel of Dialogic Corporation, a multinational technology company.

Anthony is an activist mayor and holds the Human Resources, Legal, Purchasing Community Relations, Intergovernmental Relations and Agglomeration Council portfolios. He tries to have excellent knowledge of all major city files and also serves as Secretary of the Association of Suburban Municipalities where he has spearheaded opposition against Bill 14 (PQ proposed amendments to the Quebec language legislation) and Bill 60 (PQ-proposed legislation on charter of values) across Quebec municipalities. He is a proud defender of federalism, bilingualism and individual rights and freedoms and has led the fight to retain police station 9, Quebec’s unique EMS service and worked hard to keep Meadowbrook as a green space. During Anthony’s mandate Côte Saint-Luc has attracted many young families and singles and has constructed the Aquatic and Community Centre and launched both composting and urban agriculture initiatives.  

Prior to being elected Mayor, while he was a councillor in the mega-city of Montreal he served as co-chair of the demerger committee of Côte Saint-Luc along with former City Councillors Mitchell Brownstein, Ruth Kovac and Glenn J. Nashen, and was a member of the Hampstead Demerger Committee in the successful 2004 demerger referendums, when all three sectors of the borough voted to separate from Montreal.

Anthony participates in many Côte Saint-Luc organizations including its swim team and dramatic society. In 2013, Anthony won seven medals in swimming at the Maccabiah Games in Israel.
