Headshot of Councillor Singh

In Office: 2010 - present

Paul is a longtime resident of Kitchener and exceptionally passionate about the Ward 6 community, as this is where he grew up and bought his first home.

Prior to being elected to council, Paul served on the Economic and Development Advisory Committee from 2006 to 2008, and since his election has sat for multiple terms on this Advisory Committee. He has been a strong supporter of the city's continued efforts to make Kitchener a viable candidate for new business and economic growth, helping to improve the quality of life of Kitchener residents through prosperity.

Paul attended Forest Heights Collegiate High School and later Wilfrid Laurier University, beginning his career in the mortgage services field. As a professional in the mortgage industry for many years, he has formed a broad understanding of the diverse financial pressures the average family may experience. Paul is proud to have also built a business in real-estate management and development. As an entrepreneur, Paul has a strong grasp of budgetary matters, understanding the balance required between investing in growth, while curtailing costs.

As councillor of Ward 6, Paul continues to use his skills, knowledge and experience gained from his education, career, committee membership, and familiarity with our community to provide effective and committed leadership in order to address the distinct needs and concerns of the residents and businesses of Ward 6 and this city.

Over the past decade Paul has advocated for the improvement of many Ward 6 and city-wide services and amenities. In numerous cases, his ideas, advocacy, and motions have resulted in the initiation of several programs, events, and services, including:

  • Improvements to McLennan Park
  • Improvements to Chandler Mowat Community Centre lands and play area
  • Increased programming and services support through the Chandler Mowat Community Centre to the diverse needs of the residents it serves
  • Creation of a successful Termite Program in support of Laurentian Hills residents
  • Pilot in Ward 6 resulting in asphalted and winter-maintained trails, leading to the inclusion and increase in this service level across the city through the Cycling and Trails Master Plan
  • Creation of Cinema Under the Stars, an annual event bringing residents and Neighbourhood Associations together across Ward 6
  • Collaboration with the Salvation Army Church to bring an outdoor rink and community garden to Ward 6
