Erin O'Toole has led a life of service. Born in Montreal, QC, he grew up as a middle-class kid in Bowmanville, ON.

His time in the RCAF took him across Canada, completing basic training in Chilliwack, BC; earning his wing in Winnipeg, MB; and serving out of Halifax, NS as a tactical navigator. Erin participated in search and rescue missions on Sea King helicopters and learned French during that time. After 12 years of service, Erin retired from the military and spent the next decade working in the private sector as a corporate lawyer.
