District 2: Loyalist-Cataraqui
Connect with Simon Chapelle
Simon Chapelle grew up in Sudbury where he attended Laurentian University and graduated with a Bachelor of Science Honours (Biology). More recently, he expanded his interest in public service and pursued a Master of Public Administration at Queens University. Formerly a resident of Belleville, he has served on several community boards which were focused on economic development and business expansion.
Upon moving to Kingston to join the Parole Board of Canada in 2014, his family chose to live in the Loyalist-Catarqui District and he began contributing to the community's interests by serving on the Kingston Hydro Board.
Proud to call Kingston his home, he is passionate about community service and, with the support of his family, he made the commitment to represent District 2 and the City of Kingston on a full-time basis.
Chapelle believes municipal leadership is best positioned to remove barriers to business expansion and attraction and to help ensure new jobs come to Kingston. Consequently, he proudly accepted a full agenda to serve on the planning committee, policy administration committee, Tourism Kingston board, and KEDCO board, where he plans to leverage his business development experience to help our community grow.
In his spare time, Chapelle enjoys spending time with his family, walking their dog Cinnamon, participating in outdoor pursuits or travelling abroad. He and his wife have two awesome sons named Ian and Ryan.
