Life and career
He was first elected to the House of Commons of Canada in the Moose Jaw—Lake Centre electoral district in the 1993 federal election. After realignment of riding boundaries, he was re-elected at the Blackstrap electoral district in the 1997 federal election. Kerpan was a member of the Reform Party, later renamed the Canadian Alliance. After serving in the 35th and 36th Canadian Parliaments, he did not seek a third term of office, leaving federal politics as of the 2000 federal election.
Allan Kerpan was also a member of the Legislative Assembly of Saskatchewan as a member of the Saskatchewan Party. He entered provincial politics in June 2003 when he won a by-election at the Carrot River Valley riding succeeding Carl Kwiatkowski whose death left the provincial electoral district vacant. Later that year, Kerpan was re-elected in the general provincial elections, after the boundaries of Carrot River Valley were realigned.
