Unleashing potential for 24 years

Immigrant Services Calgary invites you to be part of the 24th Immigrants of Distinction Awards (IDA) as we recognize the mosaic of ethnicities, languages, cultures, and talents that create a strong and prosperous Canada.

Since 1997, the Immigrants of Distinction Awards has used the power of story-telling to recognize the talent, excellence and positive impact that immigrants and refugees have on our local community and on Canada’s prosperity. The IDA has come to be a highly sought-after event, attracting prominent business leaders and dignitaries from all levels of government as well as the non-profit sector.

The awards ceremony will recognize the outstanding achievements of Calgary's immigrants and refugees in arts & culture, civics, academics and industry. Click here to learn more about the award categories.
