Welcome to my home page. I am so honoured that you are interested in knowing me as the Candidate for Conservative Party of Canada and serve the residents of Scarborough Centre.
Landed as an immigrant from India, a true conservative in my upbringing and spirit. I was raised in a family strongly rooted in moral and ethical values and taught to be responsible and accountable.
I am fluent in English, Tamil and can converse in Hindi. I am a loving husband, and a father of two wonderful boys.
With education in healthcare and business management from Ireland, I serve the most vulnerable in our community like our Seniors, Indigenous population, mental health and addictions, homelessness.
My family is my strength. Growing up in a middle class working family, I believe the seed of being financially responsible and taking care of oneself and others is planted at home.
I have had the honor of serving in the EDA board in Don Valley North since 2013 and I have the honor to serve as the President of Don Valley North riding association up until recently.
Throughout this period, I have worked in many campaigns, volunteered to support Conservative candidates and values and build a strong community of Conservatives.
My difficult life journey through rugged rough roads and my battle to educate myself and progress in life despite severe financial and social limitations helps me bond and identify with the weaker sections of the society and fuels my energy to campaign for change and inclusive growth.
In times so unpredictable, I present myself as a resilient leader with servant heart leadership, an able blend of empathy and strategy to take Scarborough Centre forward.
Thank you for your interest to know more about me. I am glad you are reaching in to find out more.
My name is Malcolm Ponnayan, I was born and raised in South India in the city of Chennai. I was raised in hard-working middle-class family; I grew up appreciating every small thing in my life.
As an landed immigrant and I have faced the real struggles of every immigrant in navigating the system, equipping oneself, provide for the family and find employment opportunities for a better quality of life.
