Nominations forms are out for the 2014 Immigrant Achievement Awards.

In 2009, Lethbridge Family Services established the Immigrant Achievement Awards to honour the outstanding immigrants in the Lethbridge community. This year will be the fifth year of the Immigrant Achievements Awards, to be held Oct. 1.

Individuals, businesses, agencies, and the general public can nominate an immigrant in one of the following areas to receive an award; Outstanding Youth, Arts & Culture, Community Service, Business, Distinguished Professional, Organizational Diversity and Sports. Full details can be found online at or by picking up a nomination package at either the Immigrant Services location or main office location.

The awards ceremony will take place Oct. 1 at the Galt Museum and is open to anyone who would like to celebrate success in southern Alberta. Tickets can be purchased through the LFS websites or by contacting the Immigrant Services department at 403-320-1589.

“In spite of the adversity and challenges that immigrating groups can experience, many immigrant individuals are successful in their lives and have thus been able to rise above difficulties to become leaders in their professional fields and in the Lethbridge community,” Sarah Amies, program director of Immigrant Services, said in a news release. “Lethbridge Family Services is proud to celebrate the stories of those who have used their skills, determination, and talent to enrich Canada.”

In 2013, Lethbridge Family Services helped provide settlement services to over 1,000 newcomers to Lethbridge and to Canada. These individuals have worked to learn about Lethbridge and how they can become actively involved in the community and start a new life.

Lethbridge Family Services has been operating since 1910 and helps more than 5,500 people improve their quality of life on an annual basis with the support of their four key program areas: Home Services, Immigrant Services, Counselling/Outreach/Education, and Da Capo (People with Developmental Disabilities) and 325-plus staff.

The mission of Lethbridge Family Services is to improve the well-being and quality of life for individuals and families in Southern Alberta. More information on programs, services, and how to support Lethbridge Family Services can be found online at or by contacting them at 403-327-5724.
