From the very start of her legal career, Salimah Walji-Shivji has combined a strong emphasis on high performance with a commitment to public service. The results speak for themselves, with multiple awards and appointments to senior positions. Now serving her first term, Salimah brings a wealth of experience in both education and volunteerism to the Bencher table.
Salimah held several positions within the former Calgary Health Region and Alberta Health Services including articling student, legal counsel, senior legal counsel, associate general counsel and general counsel.
In November 2015, Salimah joined AgeCare, Communities of Care and Wellness, and is currently Senior Vice President, Operations, Support Services & General Counsel.
For Salimah, the desire to run in the Bencher Election was born out of a desire to give back to her profession while bringing her specific experience and voice to the table.
