Born in Scarborough, Roxanne James graduated from Agincourt Collegiate and later on attended Centennial College. Roxanne also attended the Ontario Real Estate Association’s Real Estate College.

Roxanne has almost 20 years experience in the I.T. industry. Before being elected to office, Roxanne was employed as a Real Estate Professional serving the Greater Toronto Area.

Roxanne has actively worked in improving her community and is a past member of the Wexford Heights BIA (Business Improvement Area). Given the challenges the global recession presented all Canadians, Roxanne knows that working to help stimulate local businesses is key to helping Scarborough grow. Moreover, Roxanne believes that the tax burden on Scarborough families is too high and upholds lower tax policies which serve to create jobs and growth for her community.

Since being elected in 2011, Roxanne has served as a member of the Standing Committee on Citizenship and Immigration (CIMM) and the Standing Committee on the Status of Women (FEWO). She’s played an active role on these committees as they have studied important legislation, including Bill C-43 – Faster Removal of Foreign Criminals Act which passed to make it easier to remove dangerous criminals from Canada.

In March 2013, Roxanne’s Private Member’s Bill C-293, An Act to amend the Corrections and Conditional Release Act (vexatious complainants) received Royal Assent and became law. As a result, Correctional Service of Canada (CSC) now has added mechanisms to ensure that their grievance process is used to address legitimate complaints.

In September 2013, Roxanne was appointed Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness. Roxanne shares the values and concerns of her neighbours in the community. Protecting the safety of families, and especially children, must remain a priority. She is dedicated to helping make streets and communities safer with tougher sentencing for violent criminals as well as supports programs to assist at-risk youth attain the skills necessary to be successful and valuable members of society

Roxanne and her husband Robert, a firefighter with the City of Toronto, are long-time residents of Scarborough Centre.
