Jamie Moses became the first Black man to win a seat in the Manitoba Legislature when he was elected in 2019. He serves as the NDP’s critic for Economic Development and Training, and the party’s spokesperson on Affordability Issues.
As critic, Jamie pushed for better provincial supports for small businesses and workers in the pandemic. He fought back against the PC’s plan to cut funding to universities and colleges by 30% and stood with university faculty members striking against wage cuts. He passed his first bill in 2021, The Emancipation Day Act, which recognizes the abolition of slavery in the British Empire.
Prior to his election, Jamie worked in the financial and agriculture sectors. He has volunteered with the Glenwood Community Centre and the Glenwood Parent Advisory Council. As a former Manitoba AAAA provincial male athlete of the year, and as a basketball coach, he’s passionate about sports and funding recreation opportunities for young people.
He and his wife Shannon raise their two children in St. Vital.
