Eva Nassif MP (in Arabic إيفا ناصيف) is a Canadian politician and translator who was elected to represent the riding of Vimy in the House of Commons of Canada in the 2015 federal election.

Contents[edit]

Background and education[edit][edit]

Born in Ain el Dilb, South Lebanon, Lebanon, Nassif got her diploma in nursing in Lebanon and worked as a registered nurse for five years in the oncology ward at the American University Hospital (AUH) in Beirut during the Lebanon Civil War before arriving in Canada.[1]

After immigrating to Canada in 1993, she obtained a Bachelor of Arts degree in translation and a Master of Arts in translation studies from Concordia University. The subject of her master's dissertation was "the terminology of proteomics". She became a certified translator in English, French, and Arabic and a terminologist.[2] She also worked as a teacher for the Laval School Board.

Nassif is an activist for women's rights and social and youth affairs and is actively involved in a number of organizations. Since 2009, she has been working for an NGO specializing in educating Canadian youth and helping their integration into public life.

Federal politics[edit][edit]

She had first ran for federal office in the 2008 Federal Election in the now dissolved Terrebonne—Blainville riding in Quebec where she finished in second place behind Bloc-Quebecois MP Diane Bourgeois.[3]

Nassif had been a candidate in the 2011 federal election for Laval electoral district, for the Liberal Party of Canada coming third.

She became a candidate in the 2015 federal election again for the Liberal Party of Canada from the riding of Vimy winning with a great margin.

Nassif did not run for re-election as the Liberal candidate in the 2019 Canadian federal election due to conflicts with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau regarding Jody Wilson-Raybould and the SNC-Lavalin affair. This lead to issues with funding for Nassif's incumbent Annie Koutrakis after Nassif's team refused to transfer funds to Koutrakis' campaign.[4]


Personal life[edit][edit]

Nassif is married to a PhD engineer Georges Abi-Saad and is the mother of triplets Charbel, Maroun and Josée.
