SVETLANA LAZAREVA

COMMITTEE MEMBERS

Since immigrating to Canada 11 years ago, Svetlana Lazareva has accomplished
more than most people do in a lifetime. A registered nurse and educator, Lazareva
has authored an inspiring resource book for immigrants, The Sky is No Longer the
Limit, through which she shares the many lessons she has learned about her
adopted home with newcomers who can benefit from this information. Lazareva
founded ImmPress Institute, an organization committed to helping immigrants “to
dream more, learn more, do more and become more.” Through ImmPress,
Lazareva designs and delivers educational activities that support immigrants in
becoming established in Canada. She undertakes research to better understand
and communicate the immigrant experience and advocates on behalf of immigrants
to influence public policy.
