Born in 1987 in Lebanon, Mr. Mikhael arrived in Canada at the age of four when his parents decided to flee the civil war raging in their country. Canada was the safest country to raise their family of four boys and one girl.
The oldest of five children, Mr. Mikhael studied primary, secondary and college in Saint-Eustache, Deux-Montagnes and Sainte-Thérèse. He then continued his university studies at the Hautes Études Commerciales to obtain his bachelor’s degree in business administration with a specialization in management and international economics.
Having held various analyst positions in banking institutions for the first five years after graduation, Mikhael joined the public administration in 2014, where he now holds a managing position of two teams of civil servants dedicated to public services.
Keenly interested in nature, fishing and camping, Maikel Mikhael shares these passions with his wife, Michèle Rizk, and his one-year-old daughter, Yasmina.
