Marketcircle Inc receiving Employee Appreciation Award

"The vast majority of immigrants– especially refugees– become assets to the country once they've assimilated and Canada does a great job of this assisting during the transition."

Marketcircle Inc. CEO, Alykhan Jetha, came to Canada as a refugee when he was a child and has since grown a small software company of 40 employees in Toronto. Marketcircle Inc. has received numerous awards for their software and was just awarded for their participation in the Enhanced Language Training Program.

Alykhan remembers the struggles faced by his parents and older siblings when they emigrated to Canada – specifically trying to find jobs – so when the Enhanced Language Training Program coordinator approached Marketcircle, Alykhan didn’t hesitate to get involved.

"The vast majority of immigrants– especially refugees– become assets to the country once they've assimilated and Canada does a great job of this assisting during the transition. Getting involved in a program that helps new immigrants to enter the Canadian workforce was a no-brainer. In the future, many of them will help drive our great country forward."
– Alykhan Jetha, CEO of Marketcircle Inc.
