It is with a mix of sadness and gratitude that the Board of Directors announces Roya Rabbani’s departure as Executive Director of Immigrant Services Guelph-Wellington (IS-GW), effective July 29, 2016. Since October 2008, Roya has played a critical role in the development and success of the organization. As a result of her eight years of dedicated service, IS-GW has risen from an agency with an uncertain future to an organization recognized locally and nationally for innovative programs and exceeding benchmarks.
