  • Top 25 Canadian Immigrant Awards For 2015

    In June 2015, the winners of the RBC Top 25 Canadian Immigrant Awards For 2015 were honored in ceremonies held in Toronto and Vancouver. For the past seven years, nominations have been received from the Canadian public for “inspirational immigrants” from various backgrounds who achieve success and make a positive difference after they immigrate to Canada. This year, more than 650 Canadian immigrants were nominated, 75 finalists were selected by a panel of judges, and then over 45,000 people from across Canada cast their votes online to choose the 25 winners. The fifteen men and ten women who were honored for their Canadian immigration success stories had moved to Canada from a variety of places on the planet, such as:  Bhutan, Burundi, Chile, Egypt, Ethiopia, Germany, Hong Kong, India, Iran, Jamaica, Japan, Malaysia, Philippines, Poland, South Africa, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, Vietnam and Yemen.

For example, Susur Lee decided to move to Canada from Hong Kong and became a top Canadian chef in Toronto. Vikram Vij chose to immigrate to Canada from India and became a famous chef in Vancouver as well as a successful entrepreneur with several popular Indian cuisine restaurants. Another Canadian immigration success story is Alice Chung who is originally from Malaysia and established a chain of 29 health supplement stores across Canada.
