Aisha and Noor Jahangir, a mother and daughter pair, will be representing Guleph area ridings for the NDP in the federal election. Aisha Jahangir, the NDP’s candidate for Guelph will be joined by her daughter Noor Jahangir who has recently been nominated as the NDP’s candidate in Wellington—Halton Hills. They are committed to work alongside Jagmeet Singh to fight for the help Canadians need.
Wellington-Halton Hills encompasses the region surrounding the city of Guelph, including Elora, Fergus, Aberfoyle, Puslinch, Eden Mills, and Georgetown.
Aisha Jahangir, 44, is a veteran of the 2019 federal election campaign. She has been a registered nurse for 23 years and works as a mental health nurse at the Hamilton-Wentworth Detention Centre. She has worked on the front lines of the healthcare system during the COVID-19 pandemic and has served as a local coordinator for the Ontario Nurses Association.
Aisha’s daughter Noor, 22, received her BA in sociology from the University of Guelph and studied digital media marketing at George Brown College. She works as a customer service representative in the Ontario public sector and operates an independent small business specializing in sustainable fashion.
Aisha and Noor believe that the people of Guelph and Wellington-Halton Hills are confronted by many of the same problems: the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on our underfunded public healthcare system; affordability, and the struggle of young people to afford post-secondary education and buy a home; and the overwhelming threat of the climate crisis. They know that Jagmeet Singh and the NDP are offering Canadians a transformative vision to confront these challenges, and they are proud to be standing together as candidates for election to parliament.
