Our Team

From humble Beginnings

Sulakhan “Sam” Johal and his brothers Mark and Jasvir (“Jas”) grew up in a small village in Punjab, India and learned early on in life, the value of a hard-days’ work. They immigrated into Canada with no family or financial support behind them. Through their tireless effort, they were able to provide for their families, further their education and move up the corporate ladder. Eventually, in 2001, they made their first investment – a rundown, Best Western hotel. They renovated, sold for a profit. 

To this day they continue to work to grow their empire, bringing in a team of subject-matter experts in strategic areas to help expand their impressive legacy. With many accolades behind them, Pride will continue to grow and expand their footprint across North America.
