Samir’s interest in workplace advocacy was cemented long before he entered law school. Having spent several years working as a Research Coordinator at one of Canada’s largest construction trade unions, Samir became intimately familiar with workers’ rights in the construction industry as well as the issues faced by union’s operating in the modern economy. These experiences led Samir to study law at the Lincoln Alexander School of Law in Toronto where he worked with organizations like the Young Worker’s Rights Hub to develop and present educational seminars for young and vulnerable gig economy workers and the Decent Work & Health Network where he advocated for unrepresented employees and non-status migrant workers.
Samir joined CaleyWray in 2023 after summering and completing his professional placement with the firm.
Outside of work, Samir is an avid (but mediocre) golfer, passionate woodworker and enthusiastic dog walker for his dog, Piper.
