Jagmeet Singh

Jagmeet Singh was born in Scarborough, Ontario, spent part of his childhood living in St. John's, Newfoundland & Labrador and grew up in Windsor, Ontario. Jagmeet holds a B.Sc. in biology from the University of Western Ontario and an LL.B. from Osgoode Hall Law School. He was first elected as Member of Provincial Parliament for the riding Bramalea-Gore-Malton in 2011, re-elected in 2014 and served as both the Deputy House Leader and later Deputy Leader of the Ontario NDP from 2015-17.

As an activist lawyer, Jagmeet offered pro-bono work for community organizations fighting for social justice issues like anti-poverty campaigns and immigrant and refugee rights. He also conducted numerous free educational seminars entitled ‘know your rights’ for university students across the province.

As a Provincial Member of Parliament, he was a leader in the fight to tackle economic and systemic injustices like preventing exploitation by auto insurance companies, ensuring stronger protections for workers employed by temporary job agencies and successfully pushed the Ontario government to end the practice of arbitrary street checks, or ‘carding’ by police.

As Leader, he will attack some of the most challenging issues of our time; inequality, electoral reform, Indigenous reconciliation and climate change. To build a Canada where no one is left behind.
