Dear Friends, members

As you all are aware, C.I.F. was unable to award scholarships to students this year as a result of insufficient funds caused by the cancellation of the Nowruz Festival and Nowruz Gala as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. However, thanks to the generous donations of our friends and sponsors, C.I.F has managed to raise almost enough money to run its scholarship programme this year also. We require only $2000 more to be able to provide meaningful scholarships to post-secondary students. A generous donation has been made of a beautiful work of art by Master Houshang Seyhoun to be put on raffle in order to raise the remaining funds. C.I.F. will be selling raffle tickets at the cost of $20 for one and $50 for three. To purchase tickets, please contact the Canadian Iranian Foundation’s voice mail:604-800-1977 or email at All proceeds from this sale will benefit C.I.F.’s scholarship fund. Once the $2000 goal is reached, C.I.F. will proceed with the process of interviewing applicants and awarding scholarships.

These are challenging times for everyone, and at Canadian Immigrant, we are continuing to meet our mandate of informing immigrants to Canada and celebrating their stories.

The COVID-19 crisis has shown the world that we are all interconnected despite race, culture or country of origin. These awards have always been a symbol for diversity and the importance of coming together as Canadians. So, we made decided to move forward with the 2020 awards back in June, which have always been primarily an online initiative. We want to spread some positivity and share the stories of this year’s Top 75 finalists.

As a past winner of the program we hope you can further help us spread the word about the program and cast your vote for up to 3 finalists!  

This year’s awards will look a little different. Voting is open at, and will be ending on August 7th at 11:59 EST. The 25 winners will then be announced on on September 8th and featured in our September issue of Canadian Immigrant magazine. 

BACK THIS YEAR: The Settlement Agency Award!

For the third year in a row we are thrilled to bring  you the Settlement Agency Award, helping to recognize the work that these organizations do in helping newcomers succeed. To vote for your favourite agency, simply click here.
Thanks for your time and I hope all is well with you and your loved ones!
