Encyclopedia > Kuldip Kular

Kuldip Singh Kular (born December 12, 1948 in Ludhiana, Punjab, India) is a politician in Ontario, Canada. He is currently a member of the Legislative Assembly of Ontario, representing the riding of Bramalea-Gore-Malton-Springdale for the Ontario Liberal Party.


Kular was born to a Sikh family in Punjab, and received a medical degree from Guru Nanak Dev University. He moved to Canada in 1974, and completed two years of residency training in paediatrics at the IWK Hospital for Sick Children at Dalhousie University in Nova Scotia. He then worked for two years at the Canadian Armed Forces Hospital in Halifax, Nova Scotia, before starting a family practice in Campbelltown, New Brunswick in 1978. In 1986, he started a family and sports medicine clinic in Brampton, Ontario, which has a large number of recent Indo-Canadian immigrants. He is a founding member of the Northern Indian Medical and Dental Association of Canada.


Kular was involved in a minor professional controversy in 1993, when he was charged with inappropriately prescribing narcotics and agreed to plead guilty to two charges of professional misconduct before the Ontario College of Physicians and Surgeons. The Progressive Conservatives attempted to use this against Kular in the 2003 election, but their efforts backfired when the specifics of the controversy proved much less serious than initially believed. (The narcotic substance in question was Tylenol-3, which includes Codeine, and had been prescribed at the request of a patient who did not actually need it. The situation was judged too minor to warrant a fine or suspension.)


In the 2003 election, Kular defeated incumbent Progressive Conservative Raminder Singh Gill by about 4000 votes in Bramalea-Gore-Malton-Springdale. On October 23, 2003, Kular was appointed Parliamentary Assistant to Marie Bountrogianni is her capacity as Ontario Minister of Citizenship and Immigration. On September 27, 2004, he was appointed Parliamentary Assistant to Michael Bryant in his capacity as the Minister for Democratic Renewal.
