Meet George Chahal

George was born at Calgary’s Holy Cross Hospital in 1975 to Ram and Surinder Chahal, who had recently immigrated from the United Kingdom to pursue the challenges and opportunities of Western Canada and raise their young family.

Through a lifetime in Calgary, he has experienced first-hand the growth of our city through the highs and lows of a boom-bust economy. He married the love of his life, Aman, in 2003, and has been blessed with three daughters—a beautiful family of his own.

Early Life

George attended Stanley Jones Elementary School, Colonel Macleod Junior High School and Crescent Heights High School.  These schools provided him with a high quality, well-rounded education, giving him the opportunity to study further at the University of Calgary, where he attended and graduated from the University of Calgary with a degree in economics and later, a Masters degree in Environmental Design.  

As a child of immigrants, George witnessed first-hand the importance of hard work. His first employment opportunity was at McDonald’s on 32 Ave NE in Horizon. Working in fast food taught him responsibility, accountability, and social skills. Many years later, those same skills were adapted as a financial advisor with CIBC bank in Falconridge and a small business owner.

Active Living

George is the youngest of three brothers, has always been active in community sports with a special passion for baseball, soccer and hockey.  He continues to play and actively supports his three daughters in their participation, by training with them and through coaching soccer.

One of George’s proudest moments as a freshman councillor was the approval of a new athletic field approved at the Genesis Centre. Of the 78 high quality athletic fields in our City, none were in Northeast Calgary east of Deerfoot Trail. He believe all Calgarians should have equitable access to amenities, regardless of their postal code.
