About Andrew

I’m Andrew Hastie, your Federal Member for Canning and the Shadow Minister for Defence; Defence Industry; Defence Personnel. I live in Mandurah with my wife Ruth and our three young children, Jonathan, Beatrice, and Jemimah.

In my previous career I served as an officer in the Australian Defence Force, leading Aussie diggers from the 2nd Cavalry Regiment in Darwin and the Special Air Service Regiment (SASR) in Perth.

It was a privilege to serve the people of Australia in uniform and it’s an honour to do so as your representative in Canberra.

I’m passionate about Canning, which stretches from Preston Beach in the south to Pickering Brook in the north. Since being elected I’ve worked hard to deliver for the communities across our region, whether that’s better roads and rail, better health services, more job opportunities, more reliable mobile and internet coverage, or support for the local volunteers in our clubs and charities.

Australia faces many economic and strategic challenges in the years ahead. I want to use my experience to protect our sovereignty and make us stronger.

With your support I will continue to fight for our region and help keep Australia safe.
