As we embark on the new year, I take a moment to reflect on the past year with gratitude, recognizing the valuable lessons it brought. The learning experiences of last year fuel my excitement to apply these insights in the coming months. Anticipation for 2024 is palpable, both on a personal and business level.

Within our organization, there’s a shared excitement about the prospect of sharing more stories of inspiring immigrants who contribute positively to our community. This particular edition of our magazine is dedicated to honoring immigrant leaders who have left a lasting impact on the communities they now call home. The “Celebrating the Most Inspiring Immigrants” initiative has not only persevered but thrived, evidenced by the record number of nominations we received last year. On February 2nd, we eagerly look forward to celebrating the honorees—an occasion to appreciate the leaders continually making a positive impact in our community.

Our creative hub has broadened its scope, now encompassing a career expo designed to foster connections between employers, immigrants, and international students. Additionally, we’ve forged a partnership with the Mental Health Foundation to provide free mental health counseling to immigrants and international students. Recognizing the significance of mental health, we are committed to shedding light on this topic in a meaningful way. Our ongoing programming with esteemed partners like RBC and NSCC further underscores this commitment.

Excitingly, our film festival has expanded, and in collaboration with Air Canada, we are actively working to feature films from the East Coast in Air Canada’s In-flight Entertainment. This presents a fantastic opportunity for filmmakers to share their stories with a broader audience.

This edition of our magazine is brimming with inspirational stories, and I encourage you to immerse yourself in them, hoping they evoke a sense of inspiration within you. Here’s to a year filled with positive adventures. Cheers!
