About Jonathan

Serving our Community

Born and raised in Don Valley North, Jonathan has spent his entire career working to make our community a better place.

In 2018, Jonathan was named Toronto City Councillor for Ward 33 where he worked with Mayor John Tory and Council to make our city a more diverse and inclusive place. He believes that the diversity of our community is our greatest strength, but that strength can only be realized if we all have a chance to succeed.

Jonathan has served our community at all levels of government. In addition to being a City Councillor, he also served as a Senior Advisor to the Ontario Government at Queen’s Park, and at the Ontario Investment Office. In 2015, Jonathan represented the province on a trade mission with the Premier of Ontario, senior government Ministers, and business leaders to promote the province and attract investment and create jobs in our economy.

Jonathan is currently a member of the Board of Management of the Toronto Zoo, and served our seniors as a member of the Board of Directors of Yee Hong, a long-term care organization with facilities across the GTA.


Jonathan’s story is the story of our community. Born to first and fourth generation Chinese-Canadian parents, he was raised to value education and hard work, while being taught the importance of giving back to our community.

Jonathan is a current resident of Bayview Village, and  has seen our community grow and evolve over the years. He understands that in order for our community to succeed, opportunities must be available for all. He wants to ensure our community continues to prosper together and no one gets left behind.


Jonathan is a graduate of our local public education system in Don Valley North. He also holds a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Toronto, and a Master of Science from the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE).

I’m honoured to represent our neighbours as their Ontario Liberal candidate in Don Valley North. Together, we'll bring change to Queen's Park and ensure everyone in our community has an opportunity to succeed. Jonathan Tsao
