Samir Kayande is focused on building a resilient Alberta economy: one that creates good-paying jobs for all Albertans for generations to come. He believes investing in critical economic infrastructure will make Alberta stronger.

Before his election to the Alberta Legislature, Samir created software tools to help large institutions invest in energy, helped build a billion-dollar fossil fuel research company, and was on the board of the Pembina Institute.

Originally from Fort McMurray, Samir has lived in Calgary since 2004 with his wife JJ, and their two children.
