Allan Edward Joseph Kerpan (born 9 December 1954) is a Canadian politician.

Life and career[edit]

Kerpan was born in Kenaston, Saskatchewan. He attended public school in Kenaston from 1960 to 1972, but attended St Peter's College, Muenster during 1969-70.[1]

He was first elected to the House of Commons of Canada in the Moose Jaw—Lake Centre electoral district in the 1993 federal election. After realignment of riding boundaries, he was re-elected at the Blackstrap electoral district in the 1997 federal election.[2] Kerpan was a member of the Reform Party, later renamed the Canadian Alliance. After serving in the 35th and 36th Canadian Parliaments, he did not seek a third term of office, leaving federal politics as of the 2000 federal election.

Allan Kerpan was also a member of the Legislative Assembly of Saskatchewan as a member of the Saskatchewan Party. He entered provincial politics in June 2003 when he won a by-election at the Carrot River Valley riding succeeding Carl Kwiatkowski whose death left the provincial electoral district vacant.[3][4] Later that year, Kerpan was re-elected in the general provincial elections, after the boundaries of Carrot River Valley were realigned.[5]

Kerpan was succeeded in the riding of Carrot River Valley by the Saskatchewan Party's Fred Bradshaw.[6]
