Call for Nominations--15th Annual New Pioneers Awards

Celebration of Diversity
March 22, 2007
Metro Toronto Convention Centre

Many years ago, Skills for Change recognized the need to raise
public awareness about the contributions made by immigrants and
refugees to Canadian communities. As a result, we created the New
Pioneers Awards as a vehicle to positively and publicly recognize
newcomers and their achievements. On March 22, 2007, we will host our
15th Annual New Pioneers Awards gala event celebrating the outstanding
accomplishments of immigrants and refugees who now call Canada "home"
