Eric Duncan is a Canadian politician from the town of North Dundas, Ontario. .

Career[edit]

At the age of 18, Duncan was elected to the municipal council of North Dundas making him one of the youngest elected officials in Canadian history.[1] After serving in his seat for four years he was elected as mayor of North Dundas in 2010. [1] Duncan defeated the then incumbent mayor Alvin Runnalls.

During his time as mayor, he gained national news attention when he temporarily lent his home to a Syrian refugee family.[2] The family managed to move to North Dundas after being sponsored by local North Dundas residences. In 2014, after serving his first term as mayor, Duncan was re-elected as mayor. [3][4] At the same time he was elected Warden of the United Counties of Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry which is the upper tier of the municipality. [5]

In 2018, Duncan opted not to run for re-election for mayor. He instead ran to replace Conservative MP Guy Lauzon in the riding of Stormont—Dundas—South Glengarry in the 2019 Canadian federal election.[6] Duncan had served as Lauzon’s parliamentary assistant for nine years and as campaign manager during the 2015 Canadian federal election.
