Canada’s most recent Immigration Minister, Sean Fraser, will now become Minister of Housing, Infrastructure and Communities.
Miller was first elected to Canada’s Parliament in 2015. Prior to entering politics, Miller was a practicing lawyer and also served in the Canadian Armed Forces. Miller was born and raised in Montreal. He earned two degrees from the Université de Montréal in Political Science and his law degree from McGill University.
