On behalf of Ontario Premier Doug Ford, Aris Babikian, Member of Provincial Parliament, recently presented a Certificate of Recognition to Tony Luk, commending Tony and the Guangdong Chamber of Commerce in Canada for their contributions in fighting the COVID-19 pandemic in Ontario.
Tony Luk has always been enthusiastic about public welfare. During the SARS and COVID-19 pandemics, Tony donated both money and materials to various charities and people in need – this year was no different.
Tony founded CanHome Group, a one-stop shop for Canadian immigration services, over 31 years ago. The firm is one of the oldest immigration consultancies in the country and has helped thousands of new immigrants achieve their dream of moving to Canada and reuniting with loved ones. This has, in turn, brought skilled labour to Canada, bolstering economic activity and fostering innovation.
As an active member of the Chinese and new immigrant community, Tony cares deeply about newcomers, their needs and their desires. However, having resided in Toronto for over 45 years, Tony also understands what long-time local residents need in a city councillor. This unique balance will allow him to best serve the evolving community of Scarborough-Agincourt.
On Election Day (January 15, 2021), Scarborough-Agincourt residents will have the opportunity to vote for a new Ward 22 Scarborough-Agincourt City Councillor, a position previously held by Jim Karygiannis. Having lived in Canada for 46 years, Tony Luk has come across Canadians from all cultures, religions and walks of life. He truly understands the needs of the local community and will use his platform to help all voices be heard.
Tony has lived in Scarborough-Agincourt for more than 30 years and is full of love, gratitude and familiarity with the community. He hopes to use his understanding of the community, interpersonal skills, business sense and sincere desire to serve in order to help the ward reach its full potential as a welcoming, prosperous and inclusive community.
