Dr. Raymond Cho was elected the MPP for Scarborough-North in June 2018. Raymond immigrated to Canada from the Republic of Korea in 1967. Despite having worked for the American Embassy in Korea, Raymond could not find a professional job after landing in Vancouver, BC. His first job in Canada was as a dishwasher then later a miner in B.C. Not long after, Raymond arrived in Toronto – the city he has called home ever since.
Prior to becoming an elected official, Raymond worked as a Social Worker for the Catholic Children’s Aid Society, as well as the Toronto District School Board and Scarborough Board of Education.
