Senator Matt Canavan

Matthew Canavan is the Minister for Resources and Northern Australia, and is a Senator for Queensland.

Matthew is passionate that the Senate should strive to represent regional areas, and that is why he has based himself and his office in Rockhampton in Central Queensland.

Matthew believes that to create a stronger Queensland, we need to:

  • support our job-producing industries; 
  • protect the small against the powerful; 
  • promote property ownership, and
  • help families have children.

There is more information on this website about the issues Matthew is campaigning on, his recent speeches as well as his latest media releases and newspaper articles.

I am committed to influencing Australia's laws to achieve better outcomes for regional Queensland, but I need your help too. The best way to do that is to spread the message by following me on Facebook or Twitter, or subscribing to my newsletter. You can also get involved by volunteering or contacting me. - Senator Matt Canavan
