PK Subban Dad And Mom Are Canadian Immigrants
PK Subban father Karl Subban and mother Marie Subban are both immigrants to Canada.
Karl relocated from Jamaica, whereas Marie immigrated from the Caribbean island of Montserrat in 1970.
Karl Subban Used To Be A School Principal
Karl Subban worked as a school principal until age 55 when he finally retired in 2013. He was affiliated with the Toronto District School Board.
The eldest Subban migrated to the Canadian lands as a 12-year-old in 1970 from Jamaica and has established himself and his further generations.
Not only was Karl PK's father, but he was also his school principal. PK has always had his love, support, and guidance.
The 2012 African Canadian Achievement Award of Excellence in Education recipient, Karl, has immensely improved the condition and situation of the school he principled through hard work and dedication. When he entered Brookview Middle School as its principal, the school was not in a good state.
He eradicated severe problems from the institution, like high absenteeism from students, frequent fights, and low academics, making him a worthy recipient of the award.
With an unsuccessful dream of playing in the NBA professionally, Karl made a place for himself in society as a respectable individual with a decent job. However, he has supported his kids in fulfilling their dream of going professional.
PK always remembers his father's teachings, which helps to motivate and inspire him. Subban remembers his father's quote, “Be yourself because everyone else is taken,” and tries to implement it.
Marie Subban Worked As A Banker
PK Subban mother Marie used to work in the banking sector when he was young.
Having migrated from the Caribbean island of Montserrat at 11 in 1970, the same year as her husband, they have managed to form a happy and prosperous family.
The mother of five relocated with her siblings after her parents passed away back home. The initial years were tough on Marie, knowing she couldn't return home and had to settle on a new land, as per the Athletic.
