Alex Down for Oshawa Ward 5

As you've guessed, we're under construction but we'll be live very shortly. 


A mum, wife, and long-time community volunteer, I am a public relations and real estate professional, with experience working with organizations such as General Motors of Canada and the City of Oshawa.

My family has deep roots in Ward 5, going back to the early 1900s when the Down family farm was a central feature of the Grandview South/Apple Hill neighbourhood, where I now live with my husband Sam, daughter Isla.

I am currently a Director with the Durham Region Association of REALTORS® and understand the importance of families having a place to call home that meets their needs and budget.

For the past several years, I have served as a Director of the Oshawa Kicks Soccer Club, and I am a past member of Oshawa’s Environmental Advisory Committee, and Cultural Leadership Council.

My passion for housing, recreation and culture has cultivated a deep-rooted commitment to advocacy and volunteerism in our community. Fluent in English and French, I hold an Advanced Diploma in Public Relations from Durham College.

Election Day in Oshawa is Monday, October 24, 2022.

I look forward to meeting you and your family at the door over the coming days and weeks.
