Parm immigrated to Canada at a young age with his family, and resides in Brampton with his wife Amarpal, his two sons, Raman and Daman, and his daughter Parmeet. After completing his studies Parm became involved in a family business. He was first elected to the House of Commons in May 2011 and was appointed Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Veterans Affairs in September 2013. In January 2015, he was appointed the Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of International Trade. Parm has also served on a number of Standing Committees including Canadian Heritage, Public Safety and National Security, Health, and Procedure and House Affairs.
The safety and security of our most vulnerable citizens is a priority for Parm. For this reason, in February of 2012, Parm introduced his Private Members Bill, Bill C-394, entitled: An Act to Amend the Criminal Code and National Defence Act (Criminal Organization Recruitment). This Bill received full support from the Conservative Government. Bill C-394 became law on June 19, 2014. This law helps protect our youth from being targeted by gangs, and making our streets, communities and neighbourhoods safer by providing our law enforcement officers and justice officials with additional tools to address the growing concern of gang recruitment head-on.
Parm believes in making our community safer for our children, respecting taxpayers, keeping our government transparent and continuing to make our economy one of the strongest and most stable in the world. Parm continues to be one of the hardest working individuals in politics, striving to contribute to a community and a country that respects the rule of law, economic strength, equality for all, and support for new Canadians. Parm makes it a priority to establish strong ties with all parts of his community through outreach initiatives – striving to be the best representative for the community as a whole and working to resolve the issues that affect Canadians. Parm believes he has a duty to provide the best results for each constituent he represents.
Parm has been heavily involved in our community in support of many wonderful organizations such as the Peel Regional Police, Toys-for-Tots, Amar Karma Organ Donation Society, the Salvation Army, Family Life Resource Centre, Canadian Cancer Society, Champions 4 Change, and the Canadian Eye Sight International.
Parm holds a conception of Canada that is based on providing the best for our citizens. He wants to continue to focus on the economy as we enter our second phase of recovery – to fight for lower taxes for our job-creators and continue to reduce unemployment and increase job growth. Brampton is one of the fastest growing cities in the country and Parm believes, with hard work and dedication, we can continue this trend by providing opportunities and financial security for our residents.
Parm was elected by the great people of Brampton-Springdale and looks forward to working alongside his constituents in the new riding of Brampton-North, as we move forward together.
