Pioneers for Change

6:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.
350 King Street West
Toronto, ON M5V 3X5


Pioneers for Change ( is an idea and event born out of a desire to explore the transformative stages of the immigration process, and to articulate how these stages have been experienced by, and shaped the lives of our honourees. In celebrating the contributions these accomplished individuals have made in building a stronger Canada, Pioneers for Change will demonstrate the potential held by all new Canadians to transform Canada.

The story

For almost 30 years, Skills for Change has been working to build a Canada where every immigrant succeeds. Skills for Change has become an important first stop for people setting the course for their career in Canada and are dedicated to providing new and innovative forms of training, programming, tools and expertise to ensure Canada has the culturally diverse workforce that's needed for a vibrant society and economic prosperity.

Your part in the story

Join us on June 5 for a fantastic evening that will change the way you look at Canada and Canadians. You will experience first-hand the stories of our honourees, told in word and film. You will also be part of the making of a film that will bring the stories and the short films together into an unforgettable documentary.

Can't make it out on June 5th? You still have a part to play. Your donation will support our innovative programs and initiatives and help us support new Pioneers for Change. You can make your donations in honour of a specific individual, and Skills for Change will forward your message to the individual in a gift card.
