2001 - 2002
International Student Information Centre/Home-Stay Services
Carlos knew from a very young age that he wanted his own business one day. When he moved from Mexico to Canada he got that opportunity. He shared his love of Canada with friends back home by scouting out good schools for them here in BC. Carlos saw an opportunity and turned his passion for helping others into a lucrative business.
With offices in Mexico and Canada, he guides students from Mexico, Brazil and Venezuela in their choice of school in Canada. Once he's found a school that fits their needs he matches them with a Canadian home-stay family. The lengthy process to ensure a good fit for students and home-stay families alike is paying off! The company is generating interest for its proven ability to provide a personal touch. Carlos treats his clients like friends from home - doing everything he can to make their time in Canada a memorable one.
Carlos was acknowledged at the 2002 Entrepreneur of the Year Awards (sponsored by the Greater Vancouver self-employment programs) by winning the Entrepreneur of the Year award for Other Industry as well as the Equity Program Award for top overall client at Toward Excellence Inc.
