The St. Lawrence – Rideau Immigration Partnership has opened nominations for the 5th Annual Leeds Grenville Immigrant Entrepreneur Award! Starting a business for anyone is extremely challenging. Immigrants can face additional barriers such as having to learn a new language, maneuvering different ways of doing business, and overcoming cultural differences in order to develop new community connections.

The St. Lawrence-Rideau Immigration Partnership encourages everyone to nominate their favourite immigrant run business. Now in its fifth year, the Leeds Grenville Immigrant Entrepreneur Award is a way to celebrate and recognize the outstanding immigrant owned businesses here. Nominations are due by September 13th!
