MP Blaney celebrates national recognition for local business

Today in Ottawa, Aiguo Zhang of Campbell River’s White Hat Drycleaners was one of four businesses nationwide to be recognized by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) for innovative efforts to improve the integration of newcomers into the labour market.

“I’ve known Aiguo since my previous work at the Immigrant Welcome Centre so it’s extra special to get to celebrate and recognize his work as Member of Parliament here in Ottawa. Settlement supports and integration into the workforce are so important for successful immigration policies. Aiguo has shown that even a small business in a small community can have an important impact.” -MP Rachel Blaney
