Born in Cairo, Egypt, Mariam is the daughter of two architects, and from a young age was taught the values of charity and hard work. Since her arrival in Canada in 1998, Mariam has grown through the ranks at CIBC, going from Customer Service Representative to Financial Services Specialist with the designation of accredited investment manager.
Twice she has received the annual CIBC Award of Excellence - in 2003 and 2012. Among her many accomplishments: a missionary trip to Bolivia in 2014, annual participation in the CIBC Run For The Cure, involvement in fundraising activities with the “Centre Sainte-Justine Charles Bruneau”, contributed to the organization of the first gala for a women’s shelter in the West end of the Island.
Recognizing her efforts and her many achievements in the community, in 2017 CIBC awarded her the prize for community work. Mariam sits on the board of the West Island Women’s Shelter, and she’s also a member of the National Council of Women of Canada.
“I’m proud to be involved with the Conservative Party of Canada because it’s the party that best reflects my values. I’ll stand up for middle-class Canadians that are too often forgotten by this Liberal government. At the core of my political involvement is the passion to defend hard-working Canadians here in Pierrefonds-Dollard,” stated Mariam Ishak.
“The arrival of Mariam on our Conservative team is great news for the residents of Pierrefonds-Dollard. Her community involvement and her devotion to improving the lives of all Canadians will allow her to be an excellent MP,” said Andrew Scheer, leader of Canada’s Conservatives.
