The Immigrants of Distinction Awards celebrates inspirational immigrants who have come to call Calgary home. Through the event we recognize people who have broken through barriers in some categories such as arts & culture, entrepreneurship, and community service. The IDA is the largest event in the city recognizing the value and innovation that newcomers bring to Calgary. Representatives from all levels of government will be attending, as well as partner agencies, and we’d love to see you there during our networking reception and awards.
This event takes place at Bella Concert Hall on March 13th (Mount Royal theatre) starting at 5:30 pm. The early bird tickets ($130 until February 1st) are now available at immigrantsofdistinction.com. Each ticket allows you access to the event’s networking (including a door prize with a free flight in Canada), a warm dinner, access to the award show and other engaging activities. All proceeds from the Immigrants of Distinction Awards go back to supporting programming and services for newcomers.
