About our Candidate

Joshua Taylor

Having grown up in Geraldton, Taylor is excited to be representing his home riding as the Conservative Candidate and hopes to bring back a sense of community that has been lost over the past several years under the Liberal Government.

Starting post-secondary school at the University of Western Ontario in 2011, Taylor has obtained an undergraduate degree in Criminology and a Master’s in Kinesiology. During his time at Western University in London, Ontario, Taylor researched Indigenous intergenerational trauma and PTSD, something he believes will serve him well if elected as the MP for Thunder Bay—Superior North.

Taylor moved back to Northern Ontario from London in 2018, where he worked for the Municipality of Greenstone in the recreation department. Taylor’s professional background also includes working as an employment counsellor with the Thunderbird Friendship Centre in his hometown of Geraldton, creating the bail program for the Thunder Bay Indigenous Friendship Centre, briefly working as a 911 operator, and currently works as the Youth Engagement Facilitator in the Tobacco Control Department of the Thunder Bay District Health Unit.
