Alberta Newcomer Recognition Awards

Alberta is launching the Newcomer Recognition Awards to celebrate the outstanding accomplishments of immigrants in this province.

Newcomers contribute to Alberta’s economic recovery and cultural diversity by taking active roles in their communities, schools and workplaces, and by starting their own businesses.

The Alberta Newcomer Recognition Awards will honour these achievements to show appreciation for newcomers and inform people about the ways newcomers make our neighbourhoods, schools and economy more diverse and inclusive.
