As pres­i­dent of the Aga Khan Coun­cil

for Canada, Ma­lik Talib is one of the most in­flu­en­tial voices within the Is­maili Mus­lim com­mu­nity in Canada, a group that wields in­cred­i­ble wealth and en­trepreneurial power. But a huge part of the cul­ture is also about giv­ing back, and Talib em­braces this phi­los­o­phy, too: in ad­di­tion to be­ing a high-pow­ered tax lawyer turned in­vestor (with stakes in a wide va­ri­ety of in­dus­tries—from real es­tate to min­ing to food dis­tri­bu­tion), he’s been ubiq­ui­tous on a va­ri­ety of phil­an­thropic boards, in­clud­ing the Van­cou­ver Foun­da­tion and BC Chil­dren’s Hospi­tal Foun­da­tion.
