ANC Congratulates Tilak Chawan, 2016 RBC Top 25 Canadian Immigrant Award Winner
The ANC would like to extend sincere congratulations to our employee, Tilak Chawan, who was recently named an RBC Top 25 Canadian Immigrant Award winner! A panel of judges selected 75 nominees from over 600 applicants and Tilak was among those who were chosen following two rounds of public voting. The Top 25 Canadian Immigrant Award is a peoples’ choice honour that recognizes inspirational immigrants who have come to Canada, achieved success, and have had a positive impact on their community.
This award is certainly well-deserved given the success Tilak has had since coming to Canada in 2012. The contribution he has made to adolescent refugees, through his work as a Settlement Workers in the School (SWIS) Counsellor, has been especially inspiring. Please join us in congratulating Tilak on receiving this prestigious award!
