  • Top 25 Canadian Immigrants of 2014 Honored

    The winners of the Royal Bank of Canada’s 2014 “Top 25 Canadian Immigrants Awards” were recently honored in ceremonies held in Toronto and Vancouver. This was the sixth year that the Royal Bank of Canada (RBC), in conjunction with Canadian Immigrant Magazine, recognized individuals from around the globe who decided to move to Canada, were approved for Canadian immigration and then made outstanding achievements in their new country. There were 630 people nominated for the awards from across Canada this year during a two month period. A panel of judges then selected 75 finalists and then 40,000 Canadians voted online to choose the Top 25 Canadian Immigrants of 2014.


    According to the RBC’s Director of Multicultural Markets, Christine Shisler, “This year’s winners truly exemplify the Canadian dream and are real examples of opportunity and diversity right here in Canada.” She went on to say, “These awards do more than just recognize 25 of the best. The RBC Top 25 Immigrant awards create a community for all Canadians who have been recognized as inspirational by their peers. Whether they are new to Canada, or celebrating 20 years in this country, we recognize all of the nominees and winners for their outstanding contributions and for making a difference.”


    Canadian immigration has made Canada one of the most multicultural countries in the world and this is reflected in the diversity of the Top 25 Canadian Immigrants of 2014. Among the 25 immigrants honored this year, three had decided to move to Canada from India and then became Canadian immigration “success stories.” Another three winners who decided to immigrate to Canada from South Africa were recognized for their contributions to Canadian society. There were also two award-winners each from Bangladesh, The Philippines and Uganda. Foreign nationals approved for Canadian immigration originating from the following countries were also honored for their accomplishments: China, Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Germany, Hong Kong, Iran, Lebanon, Macedonia, Palestinian Territories, Poland, Sri Lanka, Tanzania, Uruguay and Yemen.   


    Approximately 250,000 foreign nationals move to Canada each year in search of a better life in this incredible cosmopolitan country. Many decide to immigrate to Canada because of the excellent employment opportunities, while others are seeking freedom, equality, safety or educational options, among other pursuits. Not only do thousands of people who immigrate to Canada get to live the Canadian Dream, but many of these Canadian immigration “success stories” show their gratitude for their adopted country by giving back to Canadian society in a variety of ways.
