Harjit has been a resident of Brampton since he came to Canada in 1998. He is a proud father of two – Gurpreet and Karan, who both grew up in this riding. He came to this great country seeking opportunity and a better life for his kids. His Daughter Gurpreet has become a Doctor of Medicine, and his Son Karan is a Computer Engineer. Harjit and his family feel that now it is time for them to give back to the community which has given them so much.
