They can range from a friend or family member to a cultural icon, community advocate, politician or successful entrepreneur.

Canadian immigrants are quickly rising to become the leaders of tomorrow who will help build and change the face of the country. Nick Noorani, founder and publisher of Canadian Immigrant magazine, said that with 20 per cent of the population of Canada being born in other countries, it’s especially necessary to highlight and recognize the achievements of such a large group who have made important contributions to their communities.

“Immigrants need positive role models who motivate them to succeed in a new country as they journey through their new lives in Canada,” he said.

The winners will be announced in May 2010 and will be profiled in Canadian Immigrant magazine as well as receiving a plaque and $500 donation to a Canadian charity of their choosing. Nominations will be accepted until January 29, 2010 at noon. The nomination form and profiles of last year’s winners can be found at
