Saranjit and his family settled in Canada as refugees in 1988. As the son of a taxi driver and factory worker, Saranjit saw his parents work 60-70 hours a week just to provide for their family. He has lived the struggle of the millions of Canadians hurt by stagnant wages, overcrowded housing, and precarious work. It inspired him to pursue a career as a labour and human rights lawyer.
As in-house counsel to the Canadian Union of Public Employees, the United Food and Commercial Workers, and in private practice, Saranjit has fought on behalf of nurses, retail staff, social workers, university employees, and many other hardworking Canadians.
Consecutive Liberal and Conservative governments have left Bramptonians behind, forcing them to leave their community for employment and education. Saranjit knows that we deserve better with a government that helps working Canadians – not big corporations.
