Mary Fragedakis was first elected to Toronto City Council in 2010. As a life-long resident of Ward 29, Mary brings extensive business expertise and strong community-building experience to her role as Councillor.
Prior to her election, Mary served as Vice President of a business-to-business conference company. In 2008, her company was awarded Best Overall Performance for Small Business in Toronto. The award also won Mary recognition for her green advocacy efforts in promoting conferences dedicated to eco-marketing and best practices.
Mary’s dedication to community services led her to co-found the Broadview Community Youth Group (BCYG) in 2007 to engage East York youth from all walks of life in activities to build self-confidence, self-worth and a strong sense of community.
Mary has worked to break down barriers for people of all cultural and socio-economic backgrounds as an outreach community volunteer of the Royal Ontario Museum for 20 years. With her dedication to the arts, Mary participated in the first pilot project in Toronto to make many of Ontario’s public museums and galleries more accessible to new Canadians.
Mary, who lives in Ward 29, holds an MA in Political Science from the University of Toronto.
