The last year has shown that when you send New Democrats to Ottawa, we get results. Jagmeet and I will keep fighting for you.
Matias de Dovitiis is a community advocate who is highly active in the Humber River–Black Creek community. Drawing on his extensive experience in politics and the non-profit sector, he is standing with Jagmeet Singh to build a pandemic recovery that benefits working Canadians – and a fairer, more equal future we can all look forward to.
Matias was born in Uruguay and – as an immigrant who has made Canada his home – he knows how hard it can be to get ahead, and what a huge difference it makes when governments give working people the help they need. He has seen successive federal governments favour the ultra-rich over regular Canadians and he knows it is time for a change.
Through his non-profit work, Matias has focused on helping Latinx youth and students from low-income families to make the most of educational opportunities. He was a founder of the Organization of Latin American Students, which has branches on five campuses across Ontario, and CONOSER, which develops scholarships, bursaries, and free academic support programs.
The NDP’s core values of fairness and equality resonate deeply with Matias. He has managed over 15 campaigns for progressive candidates and has held numerous positions at different levels of politics, including a seat on the Executive Committee of the Ontario NDP’s Toronto Area Council. He is currently Chief of Staff for a City of Toronto Councillor.
Now, he is ready to take the fight to the federal level. As your Humber River–Black Creek MP, he will fight to build more affordable housing, reduce the cost of prescription drugs, forgive student debt, take bold climate action that creates well-paid jobs, and make sure big corporations and billionaires pay their fair share.
