Angelica Bojo is Immigrant Services Calgary’s Volunteer of the Month for February 2020! She first registered with the volunteer program in 2014, but starting last year has really increased her commitment to volunteering, accumulating over 150 hours in 2019 alone. She has been a consistent office support volunteer, regularly helping various staff members at our offices in several different roles. She is a warm and caring person, who we hope to see a lot more of in 2020. Here is Angelica’s story.
Immigrant Services Calgary (ISC) is committed to facilitating the integration of immigrants, refugees and their families into Canadian society. To do this, we depend on members from the community to help guide our direction.
Every year, our selection committee reviews nominations from across Calgary, and Immigrant Services Calgary is proud to announce the finalists for the 24th Annual Immigrants of Distinction Awards!

Claire Hwang, an immigrant from Korea, has been living in Canada for 18 years. On Dec. 21, she took her first ever ski lesson. While learning any new sport can be intimidating, Claire and her kids came out the other end of their day of lessons with a new skill that they were eager to keep developing. With a new reason to brave the snow and cold Alberta winter, Claire kicked off her journey. Here’s a sneak peek at how the day went.
Congratulations to the first ISC Volunteer of the Month for 2020: Chander Anand.

Ever wondered what an Alberta winter is really like for people who venture out and into the mountains? You might notice that when you see someone who plays outside in the winter, they have a healthy glow – this is what we call “skier’s cheeks.” They just look really happy and content.
