Kane Lam

Young Entrepreneur

Richmond Hill, Ontario

Growing up in an immigrant family, Kane knows how valuable innovation is when it comes to building a better future. His father built his own business from the ground up, after arriving in Canada from Hong Kong.

Following in his father’s entrepreneurial footsteps, Kane became a sales and marketing strategist at a Richmond Hill technology startup. He’s committed to developing innovative technologies that make the world a little smarter every day. As an entrepreneur, Kane understands that a prosperous oil and gas industry means a thriving Canadian economy, which means good times for businesses like his father’s.

Kane also believes our country’s oil and gas industry can make Canada smarter and more competitive, with large-scale investments in technology and innovation. “The Twenty-First Century will be shaped by innovation,” Kane says. “Canada could be at the leading edge if we continue to make private sector investments. I want to help get us there.”
