The Calgary Stampede isn’t the only celebration worth checking out this year!
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.”
One World Many Stories will be held on Tuesday, October 30th, 2018 at the Coast Plaza Hotel with networking at 5:00 PM
and the program starting shortly after at 6:00 PM. Proceeds from this event, which is open to all members of the public, will be
used to support much-needed language, career, and counselling programs.
We look forward to seeing you there!
