Mintu Sandhu is running as your NDP candidate in The Maples.
Mintu Sandhu immigrated to Canada as a teenager and has lived in The Maples with his wife and their three children for 34 years. Prior to entering politics, he worked his way up to a leadership position at one of Winnipeg’s largest taxicab companies. He was first elected to the Legislative Assembly in 2019 and has served as the NDP’s Critic for Consumer Protection and Government Services. Mintu has worked to improve the MPNP program and advance family reunification, help internationally trained nurses work in Manitoba, and ensure taxi drivers received wage protection during the pandemic. He has advocated for workers and new Canadians, and he stood with families whose loved ones died during a COVID-19 outbreak at the Maples Personal Care Home. In 2023, he passed a private member’s bill to support workers by providing washrooms to delivery people, filling a need that became obvious during the pandemic.
As part of the Manitoba NDP team, Mintu will fix health care and make your life more affordable.
