Saanich Star - Parminder Virk

There are many Saanich South stars in our incredible community. But one who shines especially bright, and who I want to tell you a bit more about, is the amazing Parminder Virk!

Parminder lives and breathes community service, and is absolutely committed to making our home a more inclusive and welcoming place for all who live here – including newcomers to Canada and to BC. 

Parminder is especially active in the Victoria Indo-Canadian Community, and her impact here is impressive. The founder of the Victoria Dian Punjabana Group, Parminder organizes countless events that bring our community closer together and celebrate the strength and diversity of our community. Just recently she was the driving force behind the Lohri Dinner and Dance at Commonwealth Place, which well over 250 people attended!

Hardest Working MLA of the Year

What a great way to start 2020!

My sincerest gratitude to the Times Colonist’s readership for this award.  I’m so grateful to be recognized for my efforts in this way. 

Helping people is the top priority of this government, and of my community office. We are working hard to make life more affordable, more fair, and better for British Columbians.

Whether we’re tackling poverty, un-affordability, the housing crisis, affordable child care, climate change, or moving the dial on medical service wait times and finding primary care doctors – we are working hard.
