Team carya: Sajjad’s Story

When he and his family immigrated to Calgary in May 2014, Sajjad Ahmad was eager to find a profession that allowed him to work with and find community. He joined carya eight years ago and is currently the Counselling Services Manager, where he oversees and guides a team of counsellors who specialize in Language-Specific, Family and Older Adults counselling. 

In his work, Sajjad finds joy and fulfillment in supporting his team and while the pandemic significantly impacted their day-to-day operations, they persevered through barriers and uncertainties to provide low-barrier support for Calgarians in need. 

Sajjad is immensely proud of his team and their diligent work in ensuring all their clients are treated with respect, kindness and compassion, and get the support they need as quickly as possible. He says he loves to see how carya’s work impacts families and strengthens them for the future.

Outside of work, Sajjad is a dedicated husband and father to three children. The care and support that he offers to carya clients was taught to him by his own father, and he is passionate about raising his family with the same values.

“In life, you get the opportunity to leave a remarkable legacy.” 

We admire the legacy Sajjad and his team leave with each Calgarian they help.
