Juggy Sihota
VP, Consumer Health, TELUS

An executive with more than 20 years of leadership experience, and recent recipient of Vancouver Magazine’s Power 50 and nominee for BCBusiness’ Women of the Year award, Juggy Sihota has enjoyed a fulfilling and rewarding career leading many emerging technology businesses and operations at TELUS. Juggy is known for her unrelenting focus on quality and efficiency combined with a genuine concern and commitment for all who work with her.

TELUS is empowering Canadians to take control of their health and the health of their loved ones with the right information, tools, and support they need to live healthier and happier lives. In her role as Vice President, Juggy not only leads the largest Canadian-owned personal emergency response service in Canada but also is responsible for the national strategy, execution and operation of TELUS’ entire Consumer Health business. Together with her team, her work helps to revolutionize access to healthcare in Canada through the launch of innovative technology solutions such as: Babylon by TELUS Health - the fastest growing, highest customer-rated virtual healthcare service in Canada; TELUS LivingWell Companion - a wearable personal emergency response device for seniors; and programs like the Healthy Living Network - informative and educational health content available on TELUS’ Optik TV; TELUS’ Health for Good program that has put primary healthcare delivery on wheels with Mobile Health Clinics to help more of Canada’s most vulnerable communities; and more. Juggy was also the executive producer of the critically-acclaimed documentary Painkiller: Inside the Opioid Crisis which takes a raw look at how the opioid epidemic is ravaging our country.

Social purpose and giving back to the community are also critical components of Juggy’s leadership story. She is currently a Board Director on the VGH & UBC Hospital Foundation Board as well as on the Canadian Men’s Health Foundation. She is also an advisor to the City of Vancouver on racial and ethno-cultural equity issues.

Juggy has received a Forty Under 40 award for her business achievements, inspirational leadership and community contributions, and was also one of seven women in Canada to be awarded the Leadership Excellence Trailblazer Award by Canadian Women in Communications.

Juggy holds an MBA from Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario and has completed Executive Development programs at Harvard and INSEAD.
