Parm Gill is the current Member of Provincial Parliament for Milton. Prior to his work in public service, Parm was involved in several family businesses in the manufacturing and hospitality industries. Parm studied at the Ivey School of Business at Western University, earning his Master of Business Administration degree.
Before being elected to the Ontario Legislature in 2018, Parm was the Federal Member of Parliament for Brampton-Springdale from 2011-2015.
While serving as the MP in the Canadian House of Commons, Parm was appointed as the Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Veteran Affairs, and later, the Minister of International Trade. Throughout his tenure, Parm was a member of many committees including the Standing Committee of Public Safety and National Security, Health, Canadian Heritage, Veterans Affairs, and International Trade.
