Christina Mitas is a Canadian politician, who was elected to the Legislative Assembly of Ontario in the 2018 provincial election.[1] She represents the riding of Scarborough Centre as a member of the Progressive Conservative Party of Ontario.

Before politics, Mitas worked as a teacher abroad and was President of the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education Alumni Association.[2]

In May 2019, Mitas participated in an anti-abortion rally at Queen's Park hosted by March for Life, where she made a stage appearance.[3]

In August 2021, Mitas was identified as one of only two Ontario PC MPPs to have not received COVID-19 vaccinations. She was able to avoid expulsion from the PC caucus by producing a "medical exemption" letter from a physician. [4]
