“Be a good citizen, help others whenever you get the opportunity and put some of your time and other resources back into the community,” Bubber says.
 
Working his way up from the University of Punjab in India to beginning his own practice as a Chartered Accountant in Vancouver, Bubber was appointed to Kwantlen University College’s Board of Governors.
 
The school was given the mandate of University in 2008 and at the same time, Bubber was appointed as the first Chancellor of the University. Thanking all those who helped him on his journey, Bubber said, “it was not just a personal acknowledgement of me but a celebration of all that the South Asian community has achieved in the last 100 years. Our achievements are never one individual’s efforts but collective efforts of family, friends, colleagues and everyone who has paved the way for us.”
 
As an active member of several business organizations, including previous appointments to the Fraser Health Authority Board of Directors and British Columbia Premier's Asia Pacific Trade Council, and as a strong supporter of community involvement, Bubber is committed to mentoring his peers in the business world.
