GET INSPIRED: Celebrating Canada’s 150th. Every year, Canadian Immigrant Magazine with the support of RBC – Royal Bank of Canada, honours 25 men and women of different ethnicities to become RBC’s Top 25 Canadian Immigrants. We are proud to share our Simply The Best moments at the West Coast Top 25 Canadian Immigrant Awards Night… a proud celebration of successful immigrants living remarkable lives by pursuing their dreams, giving back to Canada and becoming role models for other newcomers.

Flor Marcelino is one of the Top 25 Canadian Immigrants 2017. She is the first racialized woman ever elected to the Manitoba Legislative and the first person of ethnic background to be given a cabinet position. We met in Winnipeg last year during my tour and now we’re happy to see Flor here in Vancouver.
