Andy Regier lives in northeast Winnipeg with his wife Allyson, their daughter Anya, and family dog, Rupert.
Andy knows that maintaining strong healthcare services means investing in healthcare, keeping Emergency Rooms open, and stopping the harmful cuts that Brian Pallister is making to our healthcare system.
Ever since the Pallister Government announced that they would be closing the Concordia Hospital Emergency Room, Andy has been fighting to stop it. Andy is the founder of the Save the Concordia ER Coalition, which is the driving force in northeast Winnipeg to keep local 24/7 Emergency Room access. Under Andy's leadership, the coalition was able to reach out to surrounding communities, collecting 6,000 signatures on a petition to the provincial government to stop the ER closure. Unfortunately, Brian Pallister has not listened to northeast Winnipeg and there is still much work to be done to save the Concordia ER.
Andy's community involvement spans nearly two decades, as a Board member of Make Poverty History Manitoba, volunteering for several youth mentorship programs, and coaching minor hockey. Andy has worked in the not-for-profit sector as a support worker for people living with disabilities, and as a crisis counsellor, helping youth and their families through challenging times. In 2015, Andy was chosen to represent Manitoba on the Governor General's Leadership Tour.
Currently, Andy works as a Policy Analyst for a Manitoba labour organization. He has a Master's Degree in Public Administration from the University of Manitoba and a Bachelor of Arts, majoring in Conflict Resolution Studies, from Menno Simons College.
Andy's interests include playing recreational hockey, and cheering for both the Winnipeg Jets and the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.
