RISE Awards 2019

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.

Newcomers form the foundation to support a stronger community. The RISE Awards aims to recognize newcomers, businesses, employers and social serving organizations who demonstrate outstanding commitments to creating a more welcoming and inclusive community for all.

The RISE Awards Are Postponed!

Due to the tremendous stress that the COVID-19 crisis is putting on our community, EMCN has decided to postpone the RISE Awards Gala a full year, until fall 2021.

We hope that RISE 2021 will be a time to celebrate the achievements of community leaders that are right now helping the most disadvantaged to overcome this crisis. Please join us next fall 2021 at the Edmonton Expo Centre for the 17th Annual RISE Awards Gala.
