The Toronto Region Immigrant Employment Council (TRIEC) is calling for entries for the 8th annual Immigrant Success (IS) Awards. Each year TRIEC presents the IS Awards to recognize extraordinary leadership in integrating skilled immigrants into the Greater Toronto Region labour market.
Nominations are now open for the TRIEC IS Award: RBC Champions of Immigrant Success. Up to four winners will be selected for: 1) their extraordinary leadership in immigrant employment; 2) the positive impact of their work on both skilled immigrants in the GTA and their own or other businesses; and 3) the sustainability of their initiative(s).
IS Award winners, and nominees, stand out as champions among their peers for immigrant employment. Winners will be recognized in the media and by their peers as leaders in an area of increasing importance to the Canadian economy. RBC will host a reception to honour the winners in spring 2014.
As Zuleika Sgro, Talent Manager and HR Business Partner at Questrade, and past winner of an Immigrant Success Award says: “The IS Award has been instrumental in promoting the great things we do and has made everyone so proud to be a part of a socially responsible company.”
Last year, for the 7th Annual IS Awards, the winners were the Regional Municipality of York, SMTC, Trinity Tech Inc. and André Goh, Manager, Diversity Management Unit, with the Toronto Police Service.
Online applications can be completed in minutes. For full details, online entry forms and profiles of previous winners, visit www.isawards.ca. A panel of senior human resource professionals, business executives and industry stakeholders will judge the IS Award submissions.
