The 9th annual RBC Top 25 Canadian Immigrant Awards 2017 competition has begun and our Executive Director, Marcie Ponte, has been selected as one of the 75 finalists.

Marcie originally immigrated to Canada from the Azores in Portugal with her family in 1963. For over 40 years, she has been a strong and dedicated advocate for immigrant women and their families through her tireless work to build opportunities for them to succeed and adjust to life in Toronto. You can find her biography on the official Voting Page or read more about Marcie’s story here.
