On International Women’s Day


We recognize all the amazing women out there who are just like our heart and soul.

For an organization to strive you need the right talent to move you forward. For an organization to thrive you need a heart and soul who cares and is deeply committed to what you do.

CRIEC is so very lucky to have found this special ingredient. For more than 7 years, she has spread the word of CRIEC while helping dozens of newcomers find their new paths in Canada. As a newcomer professional herself, she knows the challenges many face. And now, having built a successful career and life in Canada, she greets new clients to CRIEC with a simple, heartwarming smile and sometimes (if you’re lucky) a hug!

Yes, CRIEC would not be the organization it is today without her. A bold statement but true. As our heart and soul, she is out in the community connecting, engaging and finding new ways to help newcomers secure employment and establish their own roots here in Calgary.

She is our Jaya Dharan.

On this International Women’s Day, we celebrate and honour her and all the other awesome “Jaya’s” in our organization, our families and our community. With a smile that can warm your heart for days, she is one incredible woman! Thank you Jaya for who you are and all you do.
