Awards program looking for the most inspiring immigrants including business leaders from all across Canada.
Canadian Immigrant magazine is pleased to announce the call for nominations for the RBC Top 25 Canadian Immigrant Awards of 2014.
For the sixth year, Canadian Immigrant magazine and title sponsor RBC want to recognize and celebrate the stories and achievements of outstanding Canadian immigrants who inspire newcomers and Canadians alike. Associate sponsor Chevrolet is also back on board for the second year.
“Who inspires you? That’s the question we’re asking,” said Margaret Jetelina, editor of Canadian Immigrant. “We want to share the stories of immigrants from every corner of the country who have chosen Canada as their home and made it better for being here. We need your help in uncovering these inspiring people.”
Some of the winners from previous years include dancer/choreographer Wen Wei Wang, entrepreneur and community leader Zahra Al-Harazi, NBA superstar Steve Nash, former Governor General of Canada Adrienne Clarkson and many more, including entrepreneurs, artists and community volunteers.
This national people’s choice award is unique in that it allows Canadians to first nominate and then vote directly for individuals who have made a difference since their arrival in Canada. More than 31,000 votes from across Canada were cast in the 2013 awards program.
