2019 Settlement Agency Award Winner
BMC has won the 2019 Top Settlement Agency Award. This award is organized across Canada by RBC and the Canadian Immigrant Magazine to recognize the amazing work agencies do to help newcomers settle and succeed. We truly couldn’t have won this award without the great work our staff do; our partners that believe in our vision; our board and funders; and most importantly our clients who have trusted us with their success. It’s a proud day for BMC!!
We sincerely thank everyone who voted for BMC – we know we cannot take this for granted and we need to continue to do our best to serve the community with dedication and care.
Lastly, we would also like to congratulate all agencies that were nominated. We recognize the selfless work they do to help newcomers succeed! Everyone truly is a winner.
