EDMONTON: United Conservative Leader Jason Kenney on Friday congratulated Kulshan Gill on her nomination as the party’s candidate in Edmonton-Strathcona for the 2019 provincial election.

He said: “Kulshan is an experienced health care professional and entrepreneur. Prior to immigrating to Canada from India, Kulshan received her medical degree and practiced as a physician, delivering medical services to the less fortunate and HIV patients in Mumbai and surrounding rural communities.

“Upon arriving in Canada, Kulshan received her degree in naturopathic medicine and started a small business in Edmonton providing wellness services. An avid volunteer, she regularly works to ensure the health care needs of seniors in her community are being met.

“Kulshan’s unique understanding of the challenges faced by newcomers to Canada, her experience in the health care system, and her business acumen, make her a valuable member of the United Conservative team as we work to present Albertans with a common-sense alternative to the NDP.”

According to her website: “Kulshan Gill was born and raised in India and worked as a Medical Doctor before immigrating to Canada. Since moving to Canada in early 2003, she has lived in Alberta and called Edmonton home. In addition to her Medical degree from India, Kulshan also holds a Bachelor of Naturopathy degree from Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine in Toronto, has training in Mind-Body Medicine, Stress management and Relaxation therapy from Harvard Medical School. She has extensively trained in mental health, Ayurveda, Life balance coaching, Meditation and Yoga therapy from USA, Canada & India. She currently works as a Registered Herbalist and Mind Body medicine practitioner in Edmonton.”

She was born into a military family, with three generations of her family having served in the Indian Armed Forces.


  1. I am curious as to whether UCP has any thoughts of providing advanced glucose testing devices (sensors, or Flash devices) to Type 1 diabetics. Only 10% of all diabetics are insulin dependant. It seems a great amount of money is directed towards type 2 therapies leaving more serious diabetics to spend a lot of time attempting to control their disease and staying out of hospital.

    I would be interested in hearing of the UPC and the direction of their health care spending.
    Thank you.
