Personal details
Political party Nova Scotia New Democratic Party

Jim Boudreau is a Canadian politician, who was elected to the Nova Scotia House of Assembly in the 2009 provincial election.[1] He represented the electoral district of Guysborough-Sheet Harbour as a member of the New Democratic Party.

In June 2009, Boudreau was appointed the Ministerial Assistant for the Department of Fisheries and Aquaculture.[2]

In May 2013, Boudreau's private member bill to officially recognize Nova Scotia's provincial flag passed third reading in the Nova Scotia legislature. It was an 11-year-old constituent of Boudreau's who, while doing research for a school project, discovered that the flag had never been officially recognized, despite being in use since 1858.[3]

Boudreau was defeated when he ran for re-election in 2013.[4]
