Dear Friends and Neighbours,

Over the past 16 years my wife Shaliza & I have had the pleasure of raising our 5 children here in Nottingham, Ajax. We have built a successful print business on Harwood Avenue and expanded throughout Durham.

At a very young age I was taught the important life lesson of giving back to your community. Canada has been extremely kind to our family & now is my turn to give back. In the coming weeks I will be in the neighbourhood knocking on doors & I look forward to meeting you.

Training at-risk youth

Ash created and spearheaded a youth training program, along with the John Howard Society, offering on-the-job training for youths 18-24, who are considered unemployable. Ashmeed trains them to work in a creative print-production environment. Many have remained as full-time employees. This same program is now being offered in conjunction with the YMCA.

Ashmeed Khan has been a colleague, my boss as a director when I was in communications at the Ajax-Pickering Board of Trade, and I’ve been his client, receiving amazing service from his community-minded business. And in all instances I’d say a friend and an inspirational leader. He works hard, listens carefully, and always cares. I personally believe that he would be an excellent representative for his community if he were chosen to sit on Ajax Council and he would benefit the town with his passion and dedication. Not to mention down to earth sense of humour!

David Stell

Communications Manager, Not-for-profit sector

I have watched Ash grow as a business person and entrepreneur in Durham Region. I have also seen his drive and determination to not only growing his business, but also to foster economic growth for others and support initiatives in the community. This is a man with a strong commitment to family, to helping others succeed and belong. From young entrepreneurs, to economic development and diversity initiatives; Ash has given of his enthusiasm, dedication, time, and expertise to Ajax and the community.

Margot Weir

Former CEO, Whitby Chamber of Commerce

Roughly 12 years ago Ash came to Ajax with ambitions of taking over the Durham Region print maket with Minuteman Press. As a fellow entrepreneur with a neighbouring business which is now Modern Man Grooming, it was made clear early on that his drive and focus would go unmatched. With relentless marketing and networking he would soon expand his business and ultimately step into the world of politics. I have no doubt that the very same qualities such as honesty and integrity that have allowed him to be a successful businessman will transfer into being a strong political leader.
