In this capacity, he continued to build on the Yurek Pharmacy’s sterling reputation and expanded the business into the home health care sector.

In October 2011, after a long year which included a highly contested nomination process and an eventful election, Mr. Yurek was elected as the provincial representative for the riding of Elgin-Middlesex-London. Jeff’s decision to run was largely motivated by his desire to improve the province for the sake of his daughter. Being apart of the healthcare sector, Jeff is also passionate about advocating the improvement of healthcare inOntario. Coming from a large family, Jeff understands the importance of spending quality time with his own. Despite the frenzied schedule of the legislature, Jeff’s most important priority is his daughter Maggie and wife Jenn.
