Coveted Appointment for Rafiq Rokerya


Coveted Appointment for Rafiq Rokerya
(Class of 1972)



Ontario, Canada: Rafiq Rokerya of Mississauga has been appointed on the Election Campaign Finance Committee for four years. He is the first Pakistani to be appointed on the coveted position by the City of Mississauga.

Rafiq graduated from B.V.S. Parsi High School in 1972.

He says: “I wish I could share this news with our Principal Rustomji and Our Vice Principal Mrs. Mistri. The way I use to sit in class and converse with our teachers – Mrs. Mistri would call me “Minister” and told me that one day "dikkra" you will become a Minister in Pakistan. I remember those words as if they were yesterday.” Well Rafiq has come close to this achievement by securing a very coveted position in the Canadian Government.

Rokerya is a CGA and has been serving the Canada Revenue Agency (Taxation) at the Federal level.  A well known and well respected, social and political personality of the Pakistani community living in Ontario, Canada, Rafiq Rokerya will serve until year 2010 under the Municipal Election Act of 1996 of Ontario.

Amongst the population of 700,000 of the City of Mississauga, only 5 citizens have been honored with such a distinguished appointment and Rokerya is the only Pakistani amongst them.

Rafiq Rokerya migrated to Montreal Canada in 1973. He obtained his B.Com. from Sir George Williams University (now Concordia) in 1978 and completed his CGA professional designation from McGill University.

He has been working with Canada Revenue Agency for last 26 years as a Manager of Audits in the Verification and Enforcement Division. He was also a part time lecturer at the Concordia University teaching Financial and Managerial Accounting to undergraduates.

We wish Rafiq even greater heights.

Rafiq - we the Virbaijeeites are so proud of you.
All Virbaijeeites – Eyes Right.
