The citation adds, “Ajay and his brothers Kap and Tony are the founders of the Dilawri Group—the largest automotive group in Canada, with more than 4,000 employees and 76 automotive dealerships across Canada. With 24 dealerships in B.C. alone, he supports more than 2,000 employees and their families in his home province. His significant investment in electrical vehicle development is also helping address climate change and contributes to a greener economy.
“The Dilawri brothers’ success is largely based on learning a strong work ethic from their parents, who immigrated to Canada from India. They haven’t forgotten their upbringing and have built the business not only for financial success, but to generate enough capital to give back to the community.” The family has also donated millions to its Dilawri Foundation that focuses on children, health care, mental health, education, autism, and public safety.
