The Ahmed Group owes its foundation to the remarkable vision and fortitude of the late Dr. Hashim M. Ahmed. Established in 1966 in Edmonton, Alberta, Dr. Ahmed laid the cornerstone of what would later become a legacy in real estate investment. Born in Hyderabad, India, Dr. Ahmed was a trailblazer, a pioneering Hyderabadi to set foot in Canada during the early 1960s. 

Dr. Ahmed was much more than a businessman; he was a vocal community leader, a human rights advocate with an unwavering commitment to justice and equality. His principles and fervor for activism not only carved a path for community engagement but also became a guiding light for the Ahmed Group.

Dr. Ahmed’s impact extends beyond the realms of business and activism; his teachings and ideals live on, inspiring those who knew him and shaping the generations that follow. His memory is a beacon of integrity, leadership, and compassion, deeply ingrained in the spirit of the Ahmed Group. Dr. Ahmed’s legacy is cherished and honored as his life’s work continues to bear fruit in the communities he helped build and in the hearts he touched.
