Yesterday marked the final day of the 2016 Calgary Stampede and as is always the case with the greatest outdoor show on earth, a great time was had by all who entered the grounds.
Upon receiving an invitation from Centre for Newcomers, CIES joined Immigrant Services Calgary, the Calgary Bridge Foundation for Youth, The Calgary Catholic Immigration Society and the Calgary Immigrant Woman's Association for a group VIP tour of the Stampede facilities. Access to the infield, the Agri Centre, a tour of the new First Nation's Village and more was on the agenda for what was a unique and enjoyable day at the Stampede grounds. Once again a special thanks to CFN SEO Anila Lee-Yuen for asking us to come along!
The day was also a great opportunity for our city's immigration serving agencies to get together and connect, as the collaboration and partnership of all our organizations only works to better serve our community. For more pictures of our day at the grounds CLICK HERE.
