A public policy expert, Sari Madi works as a lecturer and researcher in government policy. Currently, he is completing his Ph.D. on Institutional Change in the Labor Market at the School of Industrial Relations of the Université de Montréal.
Holder of a master's degree in industrial relations (M.Sc. Université de Montréal), his publications deal with the immigration and diversity policies as well as the employment relations. He has presented his work at several academic, national and international conferences, and is an alumni of the American Political Science Association (APSA). He pays particular attention to the effects of the ecological crisis on the labor market, and he firmly believes that, with a green economy and a better redistribution of wealth, "we can do much more with much less".
Sari is a strong advocate for social justice and respect for diversity in Canadian society. He has been involved with various organizations in his community where he has played a leadership role. He has been president of organizations working in Quebec, such as the Federation of Lebanese Students in Montreal and the Middle East & North Africa Association of the University of Montreal (MENA UdeM), as well as vice-president of the Lebanese Junior Chamber of Commerce (JCCL) in Montreal.
As a future father, Sari works for a better world for the generation of his unborn baby. He is involved in the Green Party of Canada, which he sees as the engine of social change in the twenty-first century. Sari's work program is based on the intersection between the economy and the environment and draws on the candidate's expertise in government policies to support the Party's agenda and ensure the transition to a green economy. Also, policies that challenge the status quo, such as the minimum wage, pharmacare, free education, and recognition of foreign credentials of the immigrants, are among the highest priorities for the candidate.
