Joe Wamback - Candidate for Mayor of Newmarket

Joe, his wife Lozanne and son Jonathan have lived in Newmarket for almost 30 years

He graduated civil engineering technology in 1970 and was employed in the engineering and construction business. In 1984 he created Wamback Corporation and has completed over 10 million square feet of industrial, commercial and mixed use projects in Ontario including the 250 million dollar North York City Center. He formed Wamback Forensic engineering services resolving construction conflicts throughout Ontario as well as Wamback High Voltage Design and Construction providing customer owned high voltage substations across Canada as well as temporary construction power for high rise construction in Toronto.

 In 1999 his 15 year old son Jonathan became the victim of a violent criminal assault that forever changed their lives. He founded the Canadian Crime Victim Foundation to advocate for innocent victims of violent crime in Canada and created a National petition to change the Young Offenders Act which still remains the single petition with the largest number of signatures in Canada.

 Joe’s foundation operates on a completely volunteer basis with no salaries or directors fees and has raised in excess of $800,000 to provide scholarships for survivors of violent criminal acts and siblings of Canadian homicide victims.

 He created partnerships with York University and currently funds programs for residents of York Region who have been victims of violent crime to access qualified psychological counselling at no charge. He has also recently funded a successful research program providing therapy dogs in women’s shelters to ease the trauma for abused women and children.

 Joe and Lozanne are recipients of the Newmarket Chamber of Commerce, Business excellence Award for their initiatives and creativity with the work of the foundation.

 Joe is a recipient of the Queens Golden Jubilee Medal and the Diamond Jubilee Medal for his positive contribution to the social fabric of Canada.
