  • Active in the communities of Toronto and Peel, she has been involved with Canadian Psychiatric Awareness Committee, The Canadian National Exhibition, and the Mayors Task Force on Drugs.

  • Jilian has long been involved with conservative politics.
  • She has had election experience including running for office.
