He was first elected to Parliament for Surrey North in the 1997 election as a member of the Reform Party of Canada.

On May 19, 2005, Cadman flew to Ottawa for a confidence vote not long after undergoing chemotherapy treatment for malignant melanoma, the most dangerous form of skin cancer. Cadman voted with the government on the 2005 budget, which had incorporated amendments proposed by the NDP, and forced a tie in the House of Commons. The tie was broken by the Speaker of the House, who voted in favour of the Liberal budget. The budget was later passed in Cadman's absence on June 23, 2005. In an interview after the budget vote, Cadman said he voted in favour of the budget simply because he was obeying the wishes of constituents who did not want to face another election a year after giving the minority Liberals their shaky mandate.

Independent MP Chuck Cadman votes during confidence vote on the federal budget in the House of Commons on Parliament Hill in Ottawa, Thursday, May 19, 2005. As a result of Cadman's decision to support the budget, Paul Martin's fragile Liberal minority government twice averted an election, narrowly winning confidence votes in the House of Commons.

On July 9, 2005, Cadman died at his home after a two year long bout of malignant melanoma. Cadman's memorial service was held on July 16, 2005 at Johnston Heights Church, Surrey BC. Over 1500 people were in attendance: in addition to family, friends, and politicians of all parties in the church itself, Cadman's constituents packed the neighboring assembly hall and courtyard to pay their last respects by watching the service on television screens. Speeches honoring Cadman as a family man, parliamentarian, and advocate for victim's rights were made by Cadman's daughter, Jodi, Prime Minister Paul Martin, BC MLA Kevin Falcon, BC MLA Dave Hayer, Surrey Councillor Penny Priddy and several others. His wife, Dona, will be running for the Conservative Party of Canada in Surrey--North in the next election. She was elected as the Conservative candidate on December 20th, 2006.
