As a MLA Mizanur Rahman will:
• protect public health care for all Albertans
• ensure that large, profitable corporations pay their fair share
• secure funding for the education system that our students need and deserve
Born in Bangladesh, Mizanur Rahman emigrated to Canada 27 years ago. While he was a student in Jagonnath University in Bangladesh, he first became active in the fight for social justice and democracy in his involvement with Bangladesh's left wing political party (BASHAD).
When Mizanur first arrived in Canada, he lived in Montreal, followed by Ottawa and Vancouver. He then settled in Calgary. Thanks to his travels — and his inquisitive nature — Mizanur is personable and fully bilingual in Canada's official languages — and speaks other languages to boot.
He is a member of the Bangladesh Canada Association of Calgary and is the cultural secretary of Subuz Bangla Association of Calgary. In both organizations, Mizanur is seen as a community leader. He is also a talented musician who often entertains at the community's events.
