Terry Duguid is a Canadian politician and executive in Manitoba, Canada, and is currently the MP for Winnipeg South in the Canadian House of Commons. He has campaigned for elected office at the municipal, provincial and federal levels, and served as a city councillor in Winnipeg from 1989 to 1995. He is the son of two time world and Canada curling champion Don Duguid.

Duguid holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology and a Master's Degree in Environmental Science. He has been involved a variety of eco-business pursuits in the Winnipeg area, including being president of Sustainable Development International, and serving as chairman of the Manitoba Clean Environment Commission. He was president and CEO of the Gateway North Marketing Agency, which is responsible for ensuring the survival of the Port of Churchill and the Hudson Bay Rail Line. He is also the founding president of the International Centre for Infectious Diseases, a not-for-profit organization created after the outbreak of SARS to support and enhance the mandate of the Public Health Agency of Canada.


Duguid was a long-time environmental activist prior to his entry to politics. He was executive director of the Manitoba Liberal Party in the 1980s.

Duguid served as a Winnipeg City Councillor from 1989 to 1995 for the Miles MacDonell Ward (20,000 constituents) and North Kildonan Ward (40,000 constituents). He was chairman of the Public Works Committee. In that position he helped create Winnipeg's blue box recycling program.

Duguid stepped down as councillor to run for mayor of Winnipeg in 1995, but the incumbent mayor, Susan Thompson, was re-elected.

In the Canadian federal election of 2004, Duguid was the Liberal candidate in the north Winnipeg riding of Kildonan—St. Paul, a riding previously held by Liberal MP Rey Pagtakhan, who chose to run in a different riding. Duguid narrowly lost (13582 votes to 13304) to Conservative candidate Joy Smith.[1] He ran against Smith again in 2006, but Smith was re-elected in an election that saw the Conservatives win a minority government.

In the Canadian federal election of 2011, he ran as the Liberal candidate in the riding of Winnipeg South. He finished second behind the incumbent Rod Bruinooge of the Conservatives. Duguid will run again in the 42nd Canadian federal election. Within a day of the writ drop, Duguid was endorsed by the United Fire Fighters of Winnipeg president Alex Forrest.[2]

The 2015 federal election again saw Duguid running as the Liberal candidate in Winnipeg South, and this time he was elected. After the election Duguid was appointed the parliamentary secretary to the Minister of Families, Children, and Social Development, Jean-Yves Duclos.

Career and public service[edit]

Duguid has had a successful career as a leader and executive in the not-for-profit sector. From 1995 to 1997 he was president and CEO of Gateway North International, in order to secure a future for the rail line that leads to the Port of Churchill. Duguid oversaw the transfer of both the rail line and the port, together worth $100 million, to a new owner.

From 1997 to 2000 he was president of Sustainable Development International, a consulting firm specializing in conservation and international management. From 2000 to 2004, Duguid was chairman of Manitoba's Clean Environment Commission, which is responsible for carrying out public hearings for major development projects, including forestry and hydro-electric development.

From 2004 to 2009, Duguid was the founding president of the International Centre for Infectious Diseases in Winnipeg. Duguid had been part of the original task force that set out to make recommendations to improve Canada's response to infectious disease outbreaks in the wake of the SARS epidemic of 2003, especially in Toronto. The task force recommended the establishment of ICID and the Public Health Agency of Canada, with both to be located in Winnipeg.
