5th Annual Midweek South Asian Awards announced
Mississauga, Ontario: Midweek is pleased to announce that the 5th Annual Midweek South Asian Awards will be held on November 3 at the Radisson Plaza, Mississauga.
Midweek South Asian Awards recognize and honour the achievements of South Asian Canadians.
Established in 2007, the awards are attended every year by South Asian community’s most influential people, business houses, members of the South Asian and mainstream media as well as prominent politicians and celebrities.
“We are very excited to honour the extraordinary South Asians for their excellence. The winners exemplify the talent of today’s South Asian community and are the inspiration for the achievers of tomorrow,” said Yudhvir Jaswal, CEO and Chief Editor of Midweek.
The jury will also select 25 South Asians in Canada who will form the Midweek South Asian Power List. Individuals will be selected on the basis of financial status, community service, position in public service office, head of a business house, influence in the South Asian and mainstream community, and popularity.
South Asians form a large and vibrant community in Canada – close to 1.5 million. Since the beginning of the twentieth century, South Asians have been settling in Canada and further diversifying the country. Presently, South Asians are actively involved in Canadian politics at all levels, run small to large-scale businesses, participate in community service, and hold positions of influence in various sectors.
