We’ve heard a lot of stories over the past 30 years.
Stories about challenge, about success, and about fortitude. This fall, join us in celebrating these stories and our shared history from the past three decades.
To celebrate its 30 years of service for immigrants and low-income Calgarians, the Calgary Immigrant Educational Society will be hosting an anniversary gala on October 30th, 2018 entitled One World Many Stories.
This event will commemorate the Society’s three decades of history and growth from a consultation and translation service in Forest Lawn to one of the city’s prominent language, employment, and settlement service providers. With three facilities, the Calgary Immigrant Educational Society has supported over 250,000 newcomers from 75 diverse backgrounds since its opened its doors in 1988.
Attendees of One World Many Stories can expect speeches from members of government, musical performances, stories of
success, student awards, and a multicultural buffet filled with global flavours.
On the upcoming event Dr. Sally Zhao, the Society’s Chief Executive Officer, stated: “Our main purpose is to expand the help and continue to prepare newcomers to be active members of society. This event is an opportunity for us to reflect on how we build and serve our community for an even better world.”
