The youngest elected president of the Indo-Canada Chamber of Commerce (ICCC), Naval Bajaj wears multiple hats. A dynamic social mover and shaker, Bajaj helped forge a strong business relationship between Canada and India by getting local businesses in the Greater Toronto Area to collaborate with their counterparts in India. He obviously has a strong connection with his native country. “Accept this country as your karma bhumi [the place where you work to create your destiny], never forgetting your matrubhumi [motherland],” he says. Bajaj was also an integral part of the delegation to India led by Prime Minister Stephen Harper.

The successful entrepreneur and business consultant with 7-Eleven Canada, Bajaj is passionate about sharing his best practices to help the businesses grow by unlocking their full potential, unleashing the power of the Indian diaspora and working toward further strengthening the Indian community and its contribution to Canadian society.
