Business Impact Award
Tell Us Your Story. What motivated you to start your business? Why are you passionate about what you do?
My name is Alena Odegova, and I’m the proud owner of Blue Pacific Immigration, an immigration consultancy business. I’m passionate about helping others realize their dreams of starting a new life or furthering their career in a foreign country, and I truly feel fulfilled. Before working with immigration law, I was going through my Immigration process to Canada. It was extremely tough, and I went through around eight different lawyers and consultants trying to get help in the process, but none of them was a perfect fit for my situation. This inspired me to create a more efficient way to help others and be the person I wish I had when trying to become a Canadian citizen. Our commitment to excellence is what sets us apart. We pride ourselves in providing timely services that are flexible and tailored to client’s unique needs. Our services have helped many people achieve their goals in immigration path.

Kindness, complete transparency, and genuinely wanting to help people. I posted a YouTube video following the invasion of Ukraine that details how people can immigrate to Canada. I could have charged for this information, but I went with my heart and posted it for free because I wanted to help as many people as possible. Up to date there are 193,000 views, more than a 100,000 people applied for CUAET visa for free, just following my online guide. Moreover, I have a chat group in Telegram with more than 10,000 of people. Through this group, I provide free support and participants are able to help each other. At Blue Pacific Immigration, we've been representing more than 30 families from Ukraine and have submitted their applications. We've done so Pro Bono and I'm proud to say that we've had a number of successful outcomes. More than 5000 people with the help of Blue Pacific Immigration already successfully arrived to British Columbia.

Why do you deserve to win the Business Impact award?
Firstly, thank you for this opportunity to be nominated, I’m happy provide an account of why I’m a worthy candidate to receive the Business Impact Award. My credentials in the business world are strong, but I believe the true measure of my impact lies in the direct benefits I have had on the lives of people around me. I take pride in the positive change I have created for the betterment of society, both inside and out. I have strived to create meaningful connections with all those around me, and have put forth effort towards creating an environment where individuals from different walks of life are given equal opportunities to excel. Through this dedication and commitment, I have been able to empower those who would normally not have access to the necessary resources to break traditional barriers and realise their potential. I have also been an active advocate of numerous initiatives and campaigns aimed at addressing social and economic problems, particularly those affecting people in more vulnerable positions. My involvement in these initiatives has enabled people to lead better lives, where their welfare and security is ensured. The business impact award I am applying for today goes beyond the monetary value, it recognises the commitment and dedication of individuals that are willing to go above and beyond in order to create meaningful change. I believe that I personify this spirit, as evidenced by my track record of working for solutions in times of both crisis and need. I am confident that the positive impact I have had on individuals and the community will speak for itself, and aid in my receiving of this prestigious award. Thank you for your time and consideration.
Tell Us About Your Culture. How are you creating a sustainable and healthy workplace where everyone feels welcome? Provide examples of leadership you show in interactions with clients, vendors, contractors, staff and others.
I'm committed to creating a sustainable and healthy workplace where everyone feels welcome. I understand that employee health and wellbeing are more important than ever and I take my commitment to our staff seriously. As part of this commitment, I ensure everyone has access to flexible working hours and the support they need to thrive. I also work to empower my employees to make decisions that are in line with my company values and support them in achieving their personal goals. I believe that happy, fulfilled employees benefit both the company and our customers. Our team is dedicated to creating an open, inclusive environment that embraces diversity and celebrates success. Everyone deserves to be appreciated and respected. We strive to make sure every individual feels they can make their own impact at Blue Pacific Immigration. I want all of our staff to understand that their voice is important and valued. We are here to support our team and help each other succeed. Moreover I strive to create a solution-oriented approach to problem solving, which helps build trust with clients and establish strong communication channels between the client, myself and my company. Throughout the process, I place the emphasis on efficiency, reliability and professionalism. This means using my skills to tackle any issues that may arise and to develop solutions that will benefit the client and my team. To give an example of my leadership during a client interaction, I recently encountered a difficult situation where I had to advise a client on an immigration program change. While I was able to provide the facts about the program change, I also ensured that I provided a solution that was cost-effective and timely. My approach was to be proactive, by finding ways to maximize the efficient delivery of service. In addition, I provided the client with guidance, offering insight into how the change could affect their overall experience and ensure that the changes made were beneficial for them in the long run. Through this approach, I was able to establish a strong working relationship with the client. This example demonstrates my desire to go beyond simply providing basic customer service and instead seek out solutions that best meet the needs of both the client and myself. Additionally, it highlights my role as a leader during client interactions and how important it is to create strong relationships built on trust and understanding.
