The Canadian Association of Professional Immigration Consultants (CAPIC) were also in attendance to present the CAPIC $500 scholarship of Academic Excellence awarded to the student with the highest overall grades. A big congratulations to Xiaohong Zuo who won the award. Xiaohong said a few words about her experience in the program and her future as a practitioner.
Dory Jade, the President and CEO of CAPIC presented the award after flying in from Toronto and Vancouver especially to attend our annual event. Such a privilege for us to have the national and local chapters present, and we thank them for their continued support of the Bow Valley College program.
Peter Veress, program instructor and Registered Canadian Immigration Consultant (RCIC) addressed the graduate students who are moving on to write the designation Full Skills Exam and their future journey as Immigration Practitioners.
