A proud Canadian, Aleksandar Golijanin immigrated to Canada at three years old, after civil war erupted across Former Yugoslavia, in Bosnia & Herzegovina. Alek & his family arrived at the reception house in downtown Ottawa, with two suitcases, ready to start their new lives.
Alek has an educational background in Business Administration, specializing in Human Resources. Alek credits growing up in the multi-culturally rich, Ottawa South, for his tolerant views & open mindset, which have enabled him to become a global humanitarian at such a young age.
"I decided to act on the change I wanted to see. Sometimes leaders are not always a good representation of the people they represent.
In 2016, Ottawa saw a crime surge, with a record in shootings. I was particularly moved, when one of the victims of gun violence, was killed in the neighborhood, where I too had once lived, upon arriving to Canada. This was one of the many events which motivated me to take a more proactive role in Ottawa."
Ottawa is the change capital of world, with Canada being the leading force behind progressive leadership! Whatever our backgrounds might be, or reasons for moving to Canada, this place unconditionally accepts everyone & provides us all the opportunities for a better life!
Lets make the most of these opportunities, working together, there is no limit to the impact we can make & the change we can create!
