Congratulations Sherry Larjani: Ignat Kaneff Inspiration Award Recipient

May 17, 2023

Congratulations to our client, Sherry Larjani, President and Founder of Spotlight Development on receiving the Ignat Kaneff Inspiration Award at the 2023 Bild Awards. This prestigious award recognizes individuals or companies dedicated to assisting newcomers to Canada by providing employment, training, and mentorship opportunities. These individuals are known for their philanthropy, community impact, and efforts in promoting inclusivity for a stronger and more diverse country.

MarshallZehr recently financed Spotlight Development’s “The Inclusive on Courtland” project in Kitchener, Ontario. This mixed-use development is set to introduce over 2,500 units to the community, featuring affordable housing options, a 24/7 daycare facility, and various social and medical services. It aims to enhance the overall well-being of residents and contribute to the local area.

Apart from leading “The Inclusive on Courtland,” Sherry actively engages in numerous philanthropic endeavors. These include donating to local food organizations and establishing her own foundation, The Aria Foundation, which focuses on raising funds for non-profit housing partners to support low-income families.

Congratulations again Sherry on this notable achievement, and thank you for empowering communities and making a tremendous impact on the lives of many.
