Ali Manek - Scarborough-Centre

Thank you for visiting my campaign page.  Scarborough-Centre proudly exemplifies our Liberal principles of diversity and inclusion.

I am a successful entrepreneur and business owner, a passionate humanitarian, and driven to make a difference politically.

I come from a family of small business owners from Scarborough-Centre.  My parents proudly owned the Dollar Store at Warden and Lawrence Ave for many years and then a flooring company after that.

After briefly teaching high school history in TDSB & York Region, I obtained my M.B.A. and started a business called Karma Closet Thrift Stores.  We opened up 3 locations across the city.

In 2014, I started Prime successfully launching Canada’s first online flooring retailer based in Scarborough.

Before becoming a business owner, I started the charity Our Village where we went around the world helping after disasters. I travelled to 50+ countries including Pakistan, India, the Philippines, Iraq and helped build 5 orphanages, 13 schools and many water wells.

I am excited to be running for the Liberal Nomination and hope that you will engage in the process and help us pick the next MPP of Scarborough-Centre
