Born and raised in Renfrew County, Oliver is an engaged community leader, youth advocate, and volunteer who has worked in rural communities across the region. From 2018 to 2022, Oliver served as one of the youngest municipal councillors in the history of the Township of McNab/Braeside. As a former municipal politician, Oliver champions community engagement, community safety and wellbeing, and supports programs that increase affordable housing options through the Greater Arnprior Community Council on Poverty and Homelessness. He also brings proven leadership experience through various volunteer roles, including as a Board Member of Arnprior Regional Health, former Co-Chair of the Renfrew County Youth Network, and an Advisory Council and Investment Committee volunteer with United Way East Ontario.

After completing a Bachelor of Arts with a double major in History and Politics at Acadia University in Nova Scotia, Oliver returned to Renfrew County to serve his constituents in McNab/Braeside and to start his career working with both the Town of Arnprior and the Labour Market Group of Renfrew and Lanark. These professional experiences have demonstrated the need for strong policies that listen to the unique needs of rural residents, businesses, and community groups and that provide real leadership on key local issues like housing, education, health care, food security, infrastructure renewal, broadband internet, cellular service, and much more.
