Arlene Ruiz, the proud owner of Alexene Immigration & Employment Services Inc and an ICCRC & CAPIC member, has been practising as a licensed immigration consultant and recruiter since December 2013 with the office situated in the heart of Saskatchewan, Saskatoon. Ruiz offers clients a wide variety of immigration services, assisting in permanent residence applications, Canadian citizenship applications, family sponsorships, student permits, visit visas and more. What sets her business apart is Ruiz’s commitment to kindness. As her business logo suggests, she wants to “help families fulfill dreams,” a desire that effectively personalizes the immigration process. Incoming immigrants who have found employment through her firm are accommodated from the moment their plane touches down, from a pickup service at the airport, to help finding affordable accommodations, to assistance in completing applications for a Saskatchewan Health Card, a social insurance number and even a bank account. This personal approach stems, in part, from Ruiz’s personal and professional experience. In 1994, before she immigrated to Canada from the Philippines, she underwent the immigration process herself. After working for various organizations, she worked as a flight attendant. Her firsthand experience of the immigration process, and her encounters with people from all over the world both equipped and inspired her to help others with the process of immigrating to Canada. Ruiz’s warmth, understanding and rigorous vetting process gets results: since 2013, she has connected qualified foreign nationals to local Saskatchewan employers with a 98 per cent success rate. Ruiz attended Saskatoon Business College in 1997 where she took Computer Accounting Technician Diploma and graduated with honours. In 2012, she took the one-year Immigration Consultant Diploma through Ashton College in Vancouver and completed the course and graduated with honours distinction. Ruiz is a big advocate on promoting the welfare of others not only through monetary value but also by rolling up her sleeves to push for a better community. She actively participates in the community by supporting charitable organizations such as ANCOP (Answering the Cry of the Poor), Make a Wish Foundation and the Children’s Wish Foundation. She is an active member of the Business Network International- Prairie Prosperity Chapter, Women Entrepreneurs of Saskatchewan and Greater Saskatoon Chamber of Commerce. In 2020, in light of her continued success, Ruiz has received a Consumer Choice 2020 Award in the category of immigration consulting category. She has also been recently named as one of the top finalists for the Saskatoon Achievement in Business Excellence Awards (SABEX) in the Entrepreneur of the Year category. SABEX awards are Saskatoon’s premier business awards, honouring businesses in the community that exemplify high performance, quality and achievement. She is also in 2020 as one of the RBC Top 25 Canadian Immigrant Awardee and Alexene Ruiz’s passion for helping others is very evident whenever she speaks about her job. Family reunification is very important for her and sees her profession as an opportunity to help families fulfill dreams. In 2021, Arlene is nominated for the ABEX- Community Involvement Award.
