Devinder Shory

Devinder Shory was born in Barnala, Punjab, India as the second-youngest of eight children. Before moving to Canada, he earned his Bachelor of Arts and Bachelors of Law degrees from Punjabi University, Patiala, Punjab, India.

After coming to Canada and to support his family, Devinder did whatever it took including unloading linen trucks, driving a taxi and working in a video store.
Finally in 1997, Devinder was able to return to his passion of law, and Alberta was the province that gave the Shory family this opportunity. As a staunch believer in the power of entrepreneurship, Devinder set up his own general law practice in Calgary Northeast after being called to the bar in 1998.

Besides his law practice, Devinder became involved in giving back to his community. As he had personally experienced many of the hurdles faced by new Canadians, Devinder made it a habit in his law practice to point students and foreign-qualified individuals in the right direction. He was recognized for the contribution of his free legal guidance through the Law Society of Alberta.

Devinder also served on the Conservative boards of Calgary East and Calgary Northeast, on the board of the India Canada Association and in many capacities for the world class Genesis Centre from the very beginning, including Chair of the Fund Development Committee.

In October 2008, Northeast Calgarians elected Devinder to the House of Commons as their representative. In 2011, they re-elected Devinder with an even greater percentage of the popular vote.

Devinder has proudly served as a Member of the International Trade Committee, the Immigration Committee, as well as the Natural Resources Committee and the Human Resources and Skills Development Committee. He has also served as a very active co-chair of the Canada India Parliamentary Friendship Association, along with being the vice-chair of the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association, the Canada-UK Parliamentary Association and the Canada-Philippines Parliamentary Committee, where he promoted Canadian values across the globe.

Devinder is proud to have championed the importance of protecting the value of Canadian citizenship by stripping it from those who have committed grievous acts of disloyalty to Canada, such as terrorism, treason and espionage. This goes hand-in-hand with his efforts to ensure that those who are putting their lives on the line serving in our Canadian Armed Forces should be rewarded by making it faster for them to earn their Canadian citizenship. In 2014 Devinder’s hard work and effort paid off when these two ideas became law as part of the Strengthening Canadian Citizenship Act.

Devinder is a recipient of the Alberta Centennial Medal and he has been recognized many times for his community leadership. His philosophy remains that whether we were born here, flew here, drove here or sailed here, Canada opens her arms to all who work hard, play by the rules and focus on making Canada an even better place for future generations. We shouldn’t only look for our Canadian rights; we should look for our responsibilities and embrace them.

Devinder is married to Neetu, and they are blessed with three wonderful children: Jatin, Chetan and Arisha.
