2012 Top 25 Canadian Immigrants Nominations Open

The nominations for the Top 25 Canadian Immigrants of 2012 are now open. This peoples’ choice award is given to Canadian immigrants who are over 14 years old, a landed immigrant or Canadian citizen and have had a positive impact on Canada.

“Who qualifies to be a Top 25 Canadian Immigrant? Any immigrant who has chosen this country as their own and made it a better place,” editor of Canadian Immigrant Magazine, Margaret Jetelina, said in a press release. “More than success stories, the Top 25 winners over the last three years have been role models of great inspiration to others in this country. So for our 2012 awards, we’re asking again – who inspires you?”

Winners receive a commemorative plaque and the Royal Bank of Canada will donate $500 to charity on their behalf. If you know an immigrant to Canada who has a made a difference in their community, nominate them!

Voting begins in February 2012, and winners will be announced in May 2012. Past winners of the Top 25 Canadian Immigrants include Adrienne Clarkson, Michaelle Jean, Raffi Cavoukian, Donovan Bailey and Ian Hanomansing.

The magazine also has an article in which previous Top 25 winners share their best advice for newcomers to Canada, which is definitely worth a read.
