Published on March 31, 2021

The Ontario PC Party is pleased to announce that Charmaine Williams has been acclaimed as our candidate for the riding of Brampton Centre for the next provincial election. 

“I know firsthand the challenges that Brampton residents face and understand the need to build a better Brampton for all families, seniors and small business owners,” said Williams. “I want to join Premier Ford and the Progressive Conservative Caucus in government at Queen’s Park to bring the key issues that matter to the region to the provincial agenda. If elected, I will always put the needs of Brampton Centre residents first.”

In 2018, Williams became the first black woman elected to Brampton City Council. If elected as the representative in Government for Brampton Centre, she will focus her efforts on making our streets safer, ensuring that families have access to the social and recreational services that they need and want, and advocating for an integrated transportation plan in the region.

“Congratulations to Charmaine on being nominated as our candidate for Brampton Centre in the next election,” said Brian Patterson, President of the Ontario PC Party. “Her passion for advocating for people and giving back to her community will make her a great representative for the riding.” 

Williams’ beliefs, values and courage to advocate for people are shaped by her professional and personal experiences. Prior to entering politics, Williams had a 19-year career as a certified Multi-Systemic Therapist, Behavioural Consultant and Counsellor. She has been a voice on behalf of families and children of all ages coping with domestic violence, mental illness, substance abuse, neglect, trauma and other personal challenges. Williams has also worked with several therapeutic programs and organizations like Associated Youth Services of Peel, Youth Substance Abuse Program, Peel Children’s Center and the Reach Out Center for Kids in Peel and the Halton Region.
