  • Immigrants Honored for Their Achievements in Canada

    In June 2019, the Royal Bank of Canada (RBC) announced the winners of its 2019 Top 25 Canadian Immigrant Awards. This was the 11th annual recognition of 25 remarkable immigrants who have made significant accomplishments or contributions to society after relocating to Canada. Immigrants were nominated by Canadians from across the country and then the top 25 were selected to receive recognition. This year's winners are immigrants from China, Hong Kong, India, Iran, Italy, Jamaica, Jordan, Lebanon, Nepal, Pakistan, Philippines, Nigeria, South Korea, Syria, Uganda, Venezuela, and Vietnam. Each of these 25 inspiring individuals has an amazing Canadian immigration success story to tell.


    After immigrating to Canada from Lebanon in the 1990s, Rola Dagher went on to become the president of Cisco Canada. In looking back on her Canadian immigration experience, she said, “The minute I landed on Canadian soil, I felt a moment of pure hope in this amazing land of opportunity.” 


    Another incredible immigrant is Giacomo Gianniotti, who became a successful actor after relocating to Canada from Italy. His advice to other immigrants is: "Be yourself. Bring us all the beautiful gifts and riches your country’s culture has to offer and become that which you have always dreamed of.”


    Dr. Nhung Tran-Davies is originally from Vietnam and immigrated to Canada with her family in 1979 when she was five, after spending time in a refugee camp in Malaysia. Receiving a Canadian education was her ticket to success and after completing her medical degree, she became a physician and founded the Children of Vietnam Benevolent Foundation. She recently declared, “By never forgetting where I come from - from war and poverty - I remain grounded and humble in all that I do. That is why I pay forward all the goodness that has touched my life.”


    These are just three of the outstanding individuals who the 2019 Top 25 Canadian Immigrant Awards honored for their achievements while living in Canada. They are examples of the millions of immigrants who have made their home in Canada, overcome obstacles, found opportunities, and made a difference in the lives of others. They have demonstrated how the possibilities are limitless for immigrants living in Canada - a country that welcomes over 300,000 people from around the world each year and gives them the freedom and access to resources to make their dreams come true.
