Nominations are now open for the 15th annual Top 25 Canadian Immigrant Award, presented by Western Union
15 years of celebrating immigrant success in Canada!
TORONTO, Jan. 25, 2023 /CNW/ - Fifteen years ago, Canadian Immigrant magazine launched the first and only national awards program celebrating immigrant success. Today, with the support of presenting sponsor Western Union, we are proud to open the call for nominations for the 15th annual Top 25 Canadian Immigrant Awards of 2023.
The Top 25 Canadian Immigrant Awards is the leader in sharing inspiring stories of immigrants and recognizing their contributions to their adopted country. Today, with rising immigration numbers, it's as important as ever to combat negative stereotypes and spotlight how immigrants overcome systemic barriers to achieve personal success, give back to Canada and serve as role models for newcomers. This year's program is also supported by COSTI Immigrant Services, and Windmill Microlending.
Do you know someone who deserves to be recognized among the top immigrants in Canada? Canadian Immigrant and presenting sponsor Western Union are now calling on Canadians to nominate an immigrant or refugee who has an inspirational success story to share at www.canadianimmigrant.ca/top25.
Immigrants who have been honoured with this prestigious national award in past years include National Men's Soccer Head Coach John Herdman, Chief Statistician of Canada Anil Arora, celebrity restaurateur Vikram Vij, prima ballerina Chan Hon Goh, as well as many unsung heroes who have demonstrated incredible contribution in their communities and for the country.
"Fifteen years ago, we at Canadian Immigrant launched the Top 25 awards to shine a spotlight on the stories of immigrants who have come to Canada, achieved great things and made the country a better place," said Sanjay Agnihotri, Publisher of Canadian Immigrant, a national multimedia platform and producer of the awards. "Every year, we are so inspired by the people who are nominated and make it to the Top 25 and know — even a decade and a half later — that there are so many other success stories to tell."
"The impacts made by migrants are not only felt here in Canada, but all over the world, said Ari Hagnas, Western Union General Manager for Canada. "While their contributions are recognized here domestically, migrants are also sending money back home, helping improve the lives of friends and families and strengthen the local economies of their originating countries."
"We are honored once again to sponsor and recognize these awards for the second year, as well as the hard work and sacrifices made by the new members of our community that are creating stronger bonds with citizens throughout the world, while contributing to the overall economic growth and well-being here at home, he added."
