TORONTO — The Green Party of Ontario is proud to announce that Nicki Ward has been nominated as its candidate for the Toronto Centre riding ahead of the 2022 provincial election.
Ward has been involved with Green politics since she was an adolescent, when she joined the European Green Movement within the early Nineteen Seventies. She is a lifelong and successful community advocate, particularly within the areas of 2SLGBTQIA+ rights, disability rights, environmentalism and human rights.
“Enough with the politicians that talk but don’t do,” Ward said. “We’d like real motion, meaningful changes, and measurable results. And the Ontario Greens are one of the best party to bring that variety of positive change to Toronto Centre.”
“Nicki is an especially well-respected and effective community advocate. It’s my honour to welcome her to our team,” said Leader of the Ontario Greens Mike Schreiner said. “She has already made Toronto Centre a greener, more caring and more inclusive place through her dedicated advocacy work and can be an incredible representative for her community at Queen’s Park.”
Ward’s advocacy profession spans several many years and has intersected with every level of presidency.
“I see my candidacy with the Ontario Greens as an extension and one other platform to proceed doing what I already do,” Ward said. “And that’s standing up for the people of my community and being a voice for individuals who usually are not heard.”
Ward is a talented linguist, and along with her advocacy work has extensive experience within the private and public sector across Europe, the USA and Canada.
