Hi, I’m Matthew Schwarze—I’m a local student and community leader that is looking forward to making Waterloo his lifetime home with his partner.

I’m also running to represent Ward 6 on City Council. I was inspired to run by the legacy of community groups, active citizens, and previous city councillors that have put in so much work for the benefits we get to enjoy today. I'm passionate about affordable & high-quality housing, active transit, and climate action & sustainability.

Waterloo needs to build and protect affordable & high-quality housing so that everyone can live, work, study, and age comfortably and safely.

Matthew is biking along the Waterloo Park trail with trees on either side of him.

A robust active transit network will allow residents to move around the city quickly and comfortably, and it is essential to becoming a more liveable and sustainable city.

The ION LRT is at University of Waterloo Station. There are plants in the foreground and riders exiting the train platform.

Waterloo has set the path forward on climate action with the TransformWR plan—now we need the commitment to follow through and identify other ways to strengthen our natural environment.
