History / Biographical
Personal files of Senator Joyce Fairbairn reflecting her work as a Senator and Cabinet Minister in various community projects in Southwest Alberta. Senator Fairbairn, the first woman Senator from the Lethbridge area, has been involved in the Southern Albertan community all of her life and has contributed time, money, and love to many causes, organizations, and celebrations in Southern Alberta and Canada. Joyce Fairbairn was born at the Galt Hospital on November 6, 1939. She grew up in Lethbridge where she got her first experience as a journalist at the Lethbridge Herald while she was still in High School. Fairbairn earned a Bachelor’s Degree in English from the University of Alberta in 1960. Fairbairn then left Lethbridge to attend Carleton University in Ottawa, Ontario where she earned a Bachelor of Journalism in 1961. After graduation, Fairbairn began working for the Herald’s Ottawa Bureau, the Ottawa Journal, and United Press International in the Parliamentary Press Gallery. Fairbairn was known as one of the first “female newsmen.” She worked as a journalist in Ottawa from 1961-1970 and was the first journalist to report on the new Canadian flag selection as well as covered Jackie Kennedy and President Kennedy’s visit to Ottawa in 1961. The Lethbridge Herald proudly continued to publish her work from 1965-1969. In 1970 Fairbairn became the Legislative Assistant and, later, the Communications Coordinator for Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau. Fairbairn worked with Trudeau until 1984 when she was appointed to the Senate. After Fairbairn was appointed to the Senate in 1984 it quickly became clear that she would not be limited to the Red Chamber. Senator Fairbairn quickly became known for attending Southern Albertan milestones, openings, celebrations, and even the occasional cake decorating contest. Senator Fairbairn became well known throughout Southern Alberta because, as one constituent commented, “she cared enough to come”. Senator Fairbairn also became involved with many organizations and causes such as, the Paralympics, the Calgary Stampede, Books for Babies, and the Alberta Birds of Prey Centre. Fairbairn was present for celebrations in Southern Alberta such as, Lethbridge’s Centennial Celebration, Whoop Up Days, and many University of Lethbridge Convocations. Senator Fairbairn was also an active member of the Lethbridge Therapeutic Riding Association where she adopted a horse named “Dooley”. In 2008 the Lethbridge Therapeutic Riding Association honoured Senator Fairbairn with a lifetime membership. Senator Fairbairn’s devotion to Canada and the Southern Albertan community was also recognized by many other organizations. In 1990 she was inaugurated into the Kainai Chieftainship, where she received the name Chief Morning Bird Woman. Fairbairn was also made an Honourary Colonel of the 18th Air Defense Regiment, RCA. She was also made a Honourary Air Marshal and frequently attended the International Air Show at Lethbridge, Alberta. In addition, she was awarded with a Honourary Doctorate of Law by the University of Lethbridge in 2003. While Fairbairn was known for being present in the Southern Albertan community she was also known for her many accomplishments in Parliament. Her career as Senator began as the Vice-Chair of the National Liberal Caucus and the Western and Northern Liberal Caucus until 1991 when she was appointed Co-Chair of the National Campaign Committee. By 1993 Senator Fairbairn was appointed to Privy Council as the first woman to hold the position of Leader of Government. She also became the first Minister with Special Responsibility for Literacy. In 1997 she was appointed the Special Advisor on Literacy to the Minister of Human Resources Development Canada. In addition, Senator Fairbairn was the driving force behind making the Famous Five Honourary Senators and erecting a honourary statue celebrating the Famous Five on Parliament Hill. Senator Fairbairn retired from the Senate on January 18, 2013.
