WATERLOO — The Green Party of Ontario is proud to announce that Shefaza Esmail has been nominated as its candidate for Waterloo ahead of the 2022 provincial election.
Esmail currently teaches within the School of Environment, Resources and Sustainability on the University of Waterloo. She has a background in environmental engineering, a Ph.D. in Environment Resources and Sustainability.
“Shefaza brings a wealth of information in environment and sustainability to the Ontario Greens team,” Ontario Greens Leader Mike Schreiner said. “She is a certified expert who may help translate the newest engineering and science into real policy motion at Queen’s Park.”
“My academic pursuits have led me on a path of learning about environmental sustainability and the importance of protecting the land, water and air,” said Esmail. “To make sound decisions about stewardship and protecting these life-giving resources, we’d like to collaborate to recommend evidence-based policies. The Ontario Greens provide the right platform to not only voice these concerns but make actionable impact.”
Esmail also works with the BrainSTEM Alliance, where she shares STEM knowledge with youth in engaging workshops. In her free time, she also enjoys mountaineering, searching through local travel, and volunteering inside the Ismaili community.
