RISE Awards


In 2003, the Edmonton Mennonite Centre for Newcomers began the tradition of celebrating the outstanding accomplishments of newcomers, immigrants, Individuals and local organizations for their commendable service to building strong communities through social, cultural and economic development.

Today, this tradition continues and on the evening of October 4th, 2017 we will celebrate these achievements at the 14th Annual RISE Awards Gala. The gala is an inspirational and memorable evening enriched with culture, incredible performances from around the world, a signature multi-cultural buffet and outstanding award presentations to our most distinguished community members.
