Marc Miller MP (born March 12, 1973) is a Canadian Liberal politician, who was elected to represent the riding of Ville-Marie—Le Sud-Ouest—Île-des-Sœurs in the House of Commons of Canada in the 2015 federal election. After the October 2015 Federal Election he has served as the chair of the Quebec Liberal Caucus of MPs. On Jan 26th, 2017 he was appointed as Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Infrastructure and Communities.
Son of a Nova Scotian father and an Anglophone Montrealer mother, Miller attended Collège Jean-de-Brébeuf at the same time as Justin Trudeau, and has been described variously as "a boyhood friend of Mr. Trudeau" and "one of [Trudeau's] oldest friends." He subsequently helped organize Trudeau's first run for office in Papineau in 2007.
Miller earned bachelor's and master's degrees in political science from the Université de Montréal, before graduating from McGill University Faculty of Law in 2001 with common and civil law degrees. He worked abroad in New York City and Stockholm, and prior to his election was a practising corporate lawyer with Stikeman Elliott specializing in mergers and acquisitions. He also previously served in the Canadian Army as an infantry section commander.
Marc Miller married Elin Sandberg, a former Swedish diplomat, with whom he has 3 children.
