March 24, 2022 – Ontario Liberals in Simcoe—Grey nominated Ted Crysler, a lawyer and lifelong community volunteer, as their Ontario Liberal Party (OLP) candidate for the next provincial election.
“Ted is a dedicated community advocate, and entrepreneur who brings extensive legal and leadership experience,” said OLP Leader, Steven Del Duca. “He shows the kind of strong, steady leadership that Simcoe—Grey residents and all Ontarians need, and I believe he will be a fantastic representative for his community.”
Crysler has worked as a lawyer for decades in both Europe and Canada and is now leading his own practice focusing on technology and corporate/commercial law. Ted is one of the founders of a start-up company called TektiCare Inc., which is dedicated to the aging health technology space and aims to improve the lives of aging Ontarians with solutions based on technological innovation and new models of therapeutic intervention.
Crysler is also an enthusiastic community volunteer outside of his career. He has been a member at First Presbyterian Church in Collingwood and St. Andrew’s Church in Toronto, where he is an Elder and the Clerk of Session, has been the Chair of the Heart of the City Speakers’ Series, and sat on the Growth and Innovation Committee and the Board of the St. Andrew’s Heritage Trust. He volunteered at his son’s school as Fundraising Coordinator and Chair of the School Council, and he coached novice and peewee house league lacrosse teams for Beaches Lacrosse. He also serves as the President of a condominium corporation.
Being a strong proponent of public education and health care, an advocate for aging citizens, and a lifelong environmentalist, Crysler is ready to fight for progress in all of these areas as a member of the Liberal team.
“I will champion improvements to public education and health care, advocate for aging
Ontarians, and promote environmental sustainability, while fostering positive politics,” said Crysler. “I look forward to representing my community at Queen’s Park, and I will always fight for them.”
