With practical and academic knowledge abound, he migrated from India to Canada in 1975.In Canada dedication, hard work and love for family alone may not be enough to be successful! Fighting against the elements like Wind-chill Factor of -35 in the winter years or travelling without an automobile tested his limits. But Prithpal Chagger overcame not only the above but social barriers, work place ethics and self-improvement throughout his early years in Canada.
He started his career in Canada in 1975 as a supervisor at a textile mill engaged in knitting, printing and dying. He further educated him at a local college in Waterloo, Ontario. He quickly found success and gradually climbed up the ranks and became a manager. His success in Canada was quickly noticed by upper management and he was sent to the USA to repeat his achievements there in Dalton City, GA.
In 1983 he joined LNG Carpet Industry with hefty promotion. The ever energetic and entrepreneurial mind of Prithpal Chagger was now ready to venture into his own professional practice. In 1993 he opened ACI Financial Group. An Insurance and Financial Institution, dedicated to the new comers to Canada and others. This was the beginning of his business success. Prithpal soon added taxation to his portfolio which further benefited his countless clients. Thereafter, he became the CEO of SARTAJ IMPEX and ACI Informatic Inc. However, all along Prithpal Chagger never forgot his struggles in Canada and soon ventured into recruiting others into his business, mentoring them and guided families into financial success. Apart from being a prospers businessman, he is well known as an official Ordained Minister of Religion since 1981 in Ontario. Having full faith in Gurbani, he believes in the service of mankind irrespective of cast, creed religion and nationality. He is well known among others as a “Spiritual Human Being”. His deep believe in Multiculturalism in Canada is reflected in his social and humanitarian work. One such organization is Heartland Creditview and Community Health Services. As the Chairperson and President of the Board of Directors, at HCCHS, he singlehandedly financed its Seniors Wellness, Women’s Empowerment and Youth Life Skills Projects. When government funding fell short he injected funds into this important social service agency. The main aim of this organization is to empower others, help the least fortunate, the needy and make the community prosperous for all.
As a Rotarian, whose moto is Service Above Self, he has taken the roll of President Elect 2016-2017 and will be the President 2017-2018. For a person of his age and wisdom this is a testament of his resilience and toughness. He is a role model for the young, families and the elderly. He is involved with not only with his community but others in Canada.
One of the best accolades bestowed upon him is that Prithpal Chagger is a writer, a great lover of music and literature, particularly poetry. He not only writes and participates in Kavi Darbars (Mushairas), but organizes such events with great fervor, inviting other personalities of literature from around the world. He regularly honors and awards accomplished poets, musicians and social personalities.
