Luke Charbonneau

Luke Charbonneau was first elected to Saugeen Shores Council in 2006 and served two terms as the town’s Deputy Mayor between 2010 and 2018. During those years he served as Chair of the Saugeen Shores Police Services Board and as Chair of the Saugeen Valley Conservation Authority.

Luke has been Mayor of Saugeen Shores and a Member of Bruce County Council since 2018. He is currently Chair of the Bruce County Library Board, a member of the Grey Bruce Board of Health, a Director of the Nuclear Innovation Institute and a member of the South Western Integrated Fibre Technology Board.

Along with his parents, Luke is the owner of Hi-Berry Farm, a fruit and vegetable farm and market located between Port Elgin and Southampton. He is married to Alison and has three young sons; Ben, Teddy and Marty.

Luke’s priorities for the next four years include a strong push to address the housing shortage in Saugeen Shores. This will include an effort to double the number of rental apartment units in our community, providing housing for folks at every income level. His plan for housing also includes an effort to enhance regional rent subsidies available to those Bruce County residents who are most in need.

Luke looks forward to starting the construction of a new recreation and aquatics center in 2023, implementing environmental measures to reduce waste going into landfill and enhance tree cover in the community, and continuing to position Saugeen Shores and Bruce County at the innovative heart of clean energy production in Canada.

It is an honour and an privilege to be Mayor of our amazing community and Luke looks forward to serving in that role and leading Saugeen Shores for the next four years.
