Leslyn Lewis has always believed in Canada. Raised by a family that left everything behind to come to Canada because they thought it was the best place to pursue freedom and opportunity, she has spent her entire life proving them right.
From her first inkling to stand up for justice and practice law, to her successful career on Bay Street and then successfully starting her own business while completing her Ph.D. in international law and teaching law at Osgoode Hall Law School; Leslyn demonstrated throughout her life that Canada was the best country in the world where hard work and honesty can be rewarded.
Her understanding of what it takes to succeed in Canada comes from first-hand experience. Like many entrepreneurs, Leslyn didn’t draw a salary while trying to get her new business off the ground. Watching her business grow and succeed gave her a passion to help build an economy where small and medium business owners would have every chance to thrive and succeed.
