“These awards celebrate the significant contributions Canadian immigrants have made in communities across Canada,” says Ivy Chiu, senior director, newcomer strategy, RBC. “As we reflect on the amazing achievements we’ve seen over the past 10 years, we can look ahead and be proud of all that we have accomplished together, and all that we will in years to come.”
This will also be the fourth year that sponsor RBC selects one of the winners for the RBC Entrepreneur Award and the second year for the Youth Award, which recognizes the achievements of young immigrants (between 15 and 30) who are making a difference in their adopted country through achievement and/or service.
Brand new this year is the Settlement Agency Award created to recognize the amazing work immigrant settlement agencies are doing to help newcomers integrate and succeed in Canada. Nominate a settlement agency doing amazing work at canadianimmigrant.ca/rbctop25. One agency will be selected to receive the Settlement Agency Award for 2018.
Next steps in the awards process
After nominations close, a distinguished panel of judges will review all nominees and present a shortlist of 75 finalists in March, along with finalists for the Settlement Agency Awards. After an online voting phase, the winners will be announced in June 2018.
