Jason John Nixon (born May 26, 1980) is a Canadian politician and current Member of the Legislative Assembly of Alberta representing the electoral district of Rimbey-Rocky Mountain House-Sundre.
He was first elected as a member of the Wildrose Party in 2015, and then he served on the negotiation team that created a framework for unity between the Wildrose Party and the Progressive Conservative Party of Alberta. The agreement was ratified and approved by the members of both parties in July 2017, establishing the United Conservative Party (UCP).
After the merger, Nixon endorsed Jason Kenney in the United Conservative Party leadership election, 2017. After Kenney was elected as the leader, Nixon served as Leader of the Official Opposition in Alberta until Kenney was able to win a seat (Calgary-Lougheed) in the Alberta legislature in a by-election.
Nixon currently serves as the Opposition House Leader in the Legislative Assembly of Alberta. He has previously served as the Wildrose opposition critic for Human Services and was a participant on the government's Ministerial Panel on Child Intervention, which was formed after the case of Serenity, a four-year-old girl who died while in government care, was uncovered.
Nixon served for years as the Executive Director at The Mustard Seed, a non-profit organization. Nixon is an alumnus of Athabasca University and the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology. He holds a Bachelor of Commerce (Accounting Major), Post Secondary Diploma in Business Administration (Management Major) and National Construction Safety Officer.
