success STORIES

When Alexander Arav arrived in Canada, he brought with him a wealth of life experience and education. He had lived in Russia and Israel and spent three years in the army – a commander for the final year. He had completed a B.A in Administration as well as certificates in gemology, real estate, landscaping, fitness training and communications. Alexander had worked in an advertisement agency as a marketing team manager, as well as in sales and the banking system.
So why did he come to Canada? “I came to Canada for a better life,” he says. “Saskatchewan is the land of opportunity, with the difficulties and advantages of a frontier land.”
