Salimah Walji-Shivji – Top 40 under 40, 2010

Salimah Walji-Shivji - Top 40 under 40, 2010“The courts are not the most ideal place to resolve these questions. So I try and see whether we can resolve things before we get to that point.”

Walji-Shivji and her team are responsible for giving legal clinical advice on patient-care issues to an organization of more than 85,000 employees. The team also advises AHS administrators on health law-related matters, but the big responsibility is what Walji-Shivji describes as the “minute-to-minute, day-to-day stresses and ongoing events that happen within a health-care environment.”


Walji-Shivji also extends her professional expertise to the Ismaili Muslim community. Last year, after completing a four-year term as a legal advisor to the Aga Khan Council for the Prairies, Walji-Shivji was offered a three-year term with the Aga Khan National Council for Canada, a position that involves assisting the organization in legal and regulating matters.

“I have a huge amount of pride in being Calgarian and Canadian, and attempt to reflect this in all that I do,” she says.
