It’s one thing to move to another country and start a new life. When you throw entrepreneurship into the mix, things get even more challenging.
Our Immigrant Entrepreneur Award recognizes the success and contributions of outstanding new Canadians who have started a successful business in British Columbia. This individual hasn’t just surmounted the challenges inherent in moving to a new country. They’ve also taken on the mantle of entrepreneurship, exhibiting leadership in their community, and within their business. The award is judged on the following criteria:
- Overcoming Adversity: Individual has achieved success despite the challenges and barriers of being an immigrant in Canada.
- Leadership: Showcases strong leadership through both business practices and involvement within the community he/she operates.
- Track Record and Growth Plan: Business demonstrates a proven track record of financial success and is positioned for growth.
