“Ivy Lee has many strengths to offer as a candidate for Markham Regional Councillor. Her wisdom, knowledge, vision, experience, and connections enable her to represent Markham and York Region residents and businesses effectively. She will be a particularly clear voice and energetic advocate for people who most need support during these increasingly challenging times, especially families, women, seniors, youth, and entrepreneurs.
I’ve worked with Ivy on her award-winning Modesty magazine, and also in providing marketing services to Markham businesses, as well as companies overseas seeking opportunities here. Our clients and associates have respected Ivy and appreciated the information, connections, and perspectives that she provides.
Numerous politicians from federal, provincial, and municipal governments attended the events that we organized and staffed. They demonstrated admiration for Ivy and her many contributions to the growth of Markham’s business sector and her commitment to the community.
In assisting Ivy with her campaigns during this election and previously, I’ve seen consistent diligence and effectiveness in her pursuit of a better quality of life for the people of the City of Markham and York Region. Ivy knows and understands this community well, and will serve on Council with vigor, integrity, capability, compassion, and dedication.”– Judith Jakab, B.A., A.P.R., E.P.C., Chairperson for Ivy Lee’s 2022 Election Campaign for Markham Regional Councillor

She has been an active community member in Markham for many years and I believe she would be an excellent Regional Councillor to meet the needs of Markham’s residents and businesses.”– Ellen Ly, Principal Policy Officer (Fintech, Crypto) at Greater London Authority
“I've known Ivy Lee since 2009, when she helped me expand CEC, my business at that time, assisting newcomers to succeed. Ivy is a dynamite, super-woman, with a high energy level and passion for helping others.
Her life story amazes me. As a young woman, she defeated all odds, became a business owner, migrated to Canada, furthered her education, and raised her family in the City of Markham. And all these years later, she retains that same fire and ambition!
Through Ivy’s love of Markham, she has become an unofficial public servant. She truly C. A. R. E. S. for the people of this community, and this commitment has become her campaign platform. ”– Pira S. Ebrahimi, Sales Representative, Investment, Commercial, Residential, Keller Williams Portfolio Realty, Brokerage

Ivy earns my highest recommendation for Regional Councillor of Markham.”– Jonathan Wan, Growth Manager at LUKSO Blockchain Network

“I fully endorse Ivy and her CARES campaign. Markham will be better for having Ivy as a regional counsellor.”– Michael Kirshenbaum
“I fully endorse Ivy Lee for Regional Councillor.
The same thinking by past politicians has not produced real results on the key issues.
Ivy Lee and her CARES campaign indicate that this successful Markham mother, resident, and a business lady has listened to and understands the key issues.
Her past successes as a selfless hard-working results orientated community volunteer, collaborator, and business owner give her the credentials to get the job done.
We need a strong female voice on the regional council to “make Markham an even better place”.”– Alan Hamm
