Mike Shaikh is a Fellow of Chartered Accountants. As a Director of various private, public and not-for-profit organizations, Mike lives his life following his mantra of LEARN, EARN, RETURN.

A respected member of the business community, he is perhaps first and foremost regarded as a humanitarian, tireless volunteer, philanthropist, community leader, and, an exceptionally proud citizen and ambassador of Alberta and Canada.

At the heart of his work is a deep commitment to doing what he personally can to help ensure Canada continues to evolve as a prospering and caring society for all its people, including immigrants, Indigenous, and the marginalized. Through this lens, his efforts continue to centre on the focus areas of public safety, medical research, education and mentorship.

For Mike, inspiration comes in helping all Canadians with disability achieve their potential. “Canadians need to know that a person with disabilities can excel through Para sport and be a contributing member of society. Para sport gives a person with disabilities a sense of belonging and self esteem.”
