Immigrant: Canadian and Awards Program

immigrant: Presented by Canadian Immigrant magazine and sponsored by RBC Royal Bank, this annual awards program celebrates the achievements of inspiring Canadian immigrants, according to The Chronicle Herald. This award has very special meaning to me as an immigrant to this great country a country that I truly love particularly as we prepare to celebrate its 150th birthday, said Gillivan. Gillivan received this prestigious award during the ninth annual RBC Top 25 Canadian Immigrant Awards held in Toronto on June 27. It takes unimaginable courage to leave everything you know your family, your identity to come to a new land. Born and educated in Dublin, Ireland, Gillivan immigrated to Canada in 1982 and became a Canadian citizen in Ottawa in 1987. I am grateful that Canada has embraced me and my family.
