Andrea Horwath

NDP Leader

Andrea Horwath was elected Leader of Ontario’s New Democrats in 2009.

Born in Stoney Creek to an autoworker's family Andrea earned her degree in Labour Studies from McMaster University paying her way with low-wage jobs. After university, Andrea took jobs organizing in her community - teaching and training workers in Hamilton, developing co-op housing in Welland and working as a community organizer for a local legal clinic. Her own life experience and those of the people she worked with daily led her to politics.

After serving seven years as a Councillor in Hamilton municipal politics, Andrea became MPP for Hamilton East. As MPP, and today as Leader, Andrea is focused on "sensible solutions to the challenges facing people like you - making life more affordable, improving our health and education, protecting good jobs and creating new green jobs for Ontario’s future."
