Jamie Nicholls (born October 15, 1971) is a Canadian politician, who was elected to the Canadian House of Commons in the 2011 election to represent the electoral district of Vaudreuil-Soulanges in Quebec as a member of the New Democratic Party. He was defeated in the 2015 election by Liberal Peter Schiefke.
Life and career
After studying and working in Vancouver, South Korea, and Turkey, he returned to Quebec permanently in 2007. Before his election to Parliament, Nicholls worked in a variety of fields: arts and design teacher, environmental researcher, ecological intervention adviser, registered landscape architect (AAPQ) and was a board member of COBAVER (Conseil des bassins versants Vaudreuil-Soulanges).
Working as a landscape architect while he was enrolled at McGill University's School of Urban Planning, Nicholls was one of five current McGill students, alongside undergraduates Mylène Freeman, Matthew Dubé, Charmaine Borg and Laurin Liu, elected to Parliament in the 2011 election following the NDP's unexpected mid-campaign surge in Quebec.
