On November 4, the Lieutenant Governor of Ontario appointed Steve (Suresh) Gupta to the Order of Ontario — the province’s highest civilian honour awarded to an Ontarian who has shown the highest level of excellence and achievement in any field, and whose impact has left a lasting legacy in our province, in our country, and around the world.

Immigrating to Ontario with $108, Steve Gupta has become a leader in Canada’s hospitality and condominium industries and was recognized as one of Canada’s top 25 immigrants by RBC in 2013. His passion to give back led to the establishment of eye surgery camps in India, dialysis machines in Guyana, and the Indigenous Centre for Innovation and Entrepreneurship in Canada. 

It is an incredible honour to be appointed to the 2021 Order of Ontario and recognized in this way. When we immigrated here in 1971, I wanted to provide more for my family and am humbled to have played a part, however small, in also helping Ontario communities grow,” says Gupta.
