- Charleswood—St. James—Assiniboia—Headingley
Candidate: Kevin Nichols
Kevin Nichols is a lifelong resident of Winnipeg, and along with his wife and three kids has called Charleswood home for over 22 years. Kevin attended Lakewood Elementary, Hedges Junior High and John Taylor Collegiate. After transferring from the University of Manitoba to Red River College, Kevin graduated with an Honours Degree in Health and Safety.
A career public servant, Kevin has spent the majority of his career serving the people of Winnipeg. He spent his first twenty-four years at Winnipeg Transit, before accepting a position as a Safety Technician with the Public Works Department. Through this experience Kevin has developed a great deal of knowledge of the inner workings of government services, and has seen first-hand how political decision-making impacts the delivery of the day-to-day services Canadians rely on.
Professional development has allowed Kevin to advance in the city with Occupational Health and Safety and Winnipeg Emergency Management. Throughout his career, Kevin has always strived to make the City of Winnipeg a better place to live and work.
Through his studies, Kevin has always had an interest in the environment and his community, volunteering for many different organizations focused on building stronger neighbourhoods and environmental stewardship.
Kevin would be incredibly honoured to represent the areas in which he grew up and has lived all his life, and sees running for office as a prime way to give back to a community that has given him and his family so much over the years. He looks forward to engaging with constituents during this election, and if elected will work tirelessly to ensure their voice is truly heard in Ottawa.
The Green Party of Canada is excited to have Kevin Nichols as our candidate in the riding of Charleswood–St. James–Assiniboia.
