Parm arrived to Canada at a young age, immediately setting down roots in the Greater Toronto Area. He now resides in Brampton with his wife Amarpal, his two sons, Raman and Daman, and his daughter Parmeet. Mr. Gill was first elected to the House of Commons in 2011 and serves on both the Standing Committee on Public Safety and National Security (SECU) and the Standing Committee on Procedure and House Affairs (PROC) .
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 passed the House of Commons on May 1st, 2013. The safety and security of our most vulnerable citizens is a priority for Parm. This Bill is seeking to make 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 has been involved in politics for many years with the desire to make a change in Canada. In 2006 he began his candidacy in Brampton-Springdale, a community he has deep roots in. Parm believes in making our community safer for our children, lowering taxes for our families, keeping our government accountable 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 is based on crime control, economic strength, equality for all and support for our immigrants. 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 each Bramptonian. Parm believes he has a strong personal connection and duty to provide the best results for each constituent he represents.
Parm has been heavily involved in Brampton-Springdale through organizations such as the Peel Regional Police, Toys-for-Tots, iRock Pink, Wellspring Chinguacousy Cancer Support Centre and the Canadian Eye Sight International. Parm continues to work on behalf of those who are less fortunate to provide a lifestyle that all of us deserve.
Parm has made significant contributions to Brampton through round-tables with our seniors, veterans, immigrants and business owners.
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 as we move forward together.
