In less than two years, he secured approval of the Highway 427 extension and delivered $49.7 million towards the Mackenzie Vaughan Hospital and $49 million for four new schools in Vaughan. Del Duca was re-elected in June 2014 and appointed Ontario's Minister of Transportation in Premier Kathleen Wynne's cabinet.
Prior to his election as MPP, he was the fundraising chair for the 2008 Annual Vaughan Hospital Fundraising Gala, which raised over $1 million for the project. In 2008, he authored an op-ed in the Toronto Star calling for a regional economic summit to help Vaughan and surrounding areas deal with the global economic crisis. He worked with all levels of government, community leaders and organizations to establish the Greater Toronto Region Economic Summit, which took place in May 2009.
Del Duca obtained a bachelor of laws from Osgoode Hall law school in 2007. Previously, he studied political science and Canadian history at the University of Toronto and Carleton University.
He first moved to Vaughan in 1987 when his family settled in Kleinburg. Today, he and his wife, together with their two daughters, live in Woodbridge.
