Nicholas Wendler is ready to bring the fight for better healthcare and social support to Queen’s Park on behalf of the people of Essex and all Ontarians.
As a person living with Spina Bifida, Nicholas has extensive experience navigating Ontario’s healthcare system as a patient. He recognizes the great value of community nursing care and how it enables people to continue day-to-day living while managing ongoing treatments. A recent amputee, Nicholas believes that cuts should not result in cuts to healthcare funding and quality of services. A recipient of the Ontario Disability Support Program (ODSP), Nicholas manages his care through the Direct Funding Program of Ontario.
Nicholas completed his Master’s degree in spiritual care and psychotherapy at Wilfrid Laurier University after completing a Bachelor of Arts degree in social development studies at the University of Waterloo. Nicholas is very fond of learning about global wildlife and delves into experiencing nature to the best of his ability, given his physical circumstances.
A dedicated volunteer for the Greens, Nicholas ran provincially for the party in 2018 and federally in 2015 and 2019. Nicholas is prepared for the hard work ahead to build the Ontario we want for Essex.
