New Democrat Party
Born and raised in Brampton, Jordan first became involved in politics as a volunteer for Jagmeet Singh during his time as a Member of Provincial Parliament in Ontario. Seeing first-hand the impacts politics can have on a community, and the commitment of the NDP to always put people at the centre of every policy, Jordan was inspired to get involved.
After graduating from the University of Toronto and earning a Masters Degree in Political Management from Carleton University, Jordan joined Jagmeet’s historic leadership campaign and later worked as part of the Leader’s team in Ottawa. Growing up, Jordan was active in his community, through hockey, baseball, and work. He saw how his parents – like so many Brampton families – had to make sacrifices so he and his brothers had opportunities to succeed. And he’s seen how the housing crisis, skyrocketing out-of-pocket healthcare costs, and the lack of good-paying jobs are keeping hard-working Bramptonians from getting ahead.
