Our expertise is based in solving business challenges, connecting brand with menu, menu engineering, food cost control programs, guest experience, operations efficiency, customer service, training, marketing and more.

Since my family and I arrived in Canada in 2010 we know the feeling of not knowing what to do even though you have a plan before your arrival being emigrant in Canada is hard and it can be harder if you don’t have good guidance, we have been helping others since we landed and we have received help as well but not everybody is that fortunate that’s why being part of this non-profit organization with the mission of unite and support all Dominicans in Canada, Newcomers and Dominicans who want to come to Canada just make sense to helped them in an organized way.

Hospitality means Serve and I've been serving others in this industry my entire professional live so for me it’s an honor to be part of this group of Dominicans that can make a difference in other families and impact positively in their future here in Canada. Also it’s extremely important for our children to not forget their roots, language, our traditions, food and were they come from.

Recently working in the areas of brand development, graphic and web and app development, marketing strategies, consumer insights, trends, and target market analysis related with the development of new businesses, products and services for local and international clients.

Being Canadian - Dominican and my husband Dominican, arriving with my family about 5 years ago, it was not easy settling in. Therefore, we didn't want other Dominican to go through the same hassle we had. Therefore my husband and I have developed a non-profit organization with the mission to unite and support all Dominicans who are already living in Canada, Newcomers and Dominicans who are interested in coming to Canada, hoping to contribute to a better experience. 

As an organization that is for the Dominican community we would like to see every family grow, feel confident enough to consult on any topic to help them make the right decisions; we want our children to understand and be part of the Dominican culture and heritage and most importantly to be the best example for the future generation in Canada, giving them the vision and motivation to want to become professionals as we are, hopefully continuing this inspiring project for future generations. 

Through our Facebook page (www.facebook.com/ProfesionalesEnCanada) our objective is to inform and post up to date information of topics related to Dominican Republic, Canada, immigration, finances, lifestyle, government Programs, family activities, cultural events, news, and much more. 
We organized our 1st annual reunion Sept 2012 and the outcome and feedback's were amazing and now we are planning our 3rd event, and have a Board of Directors that are assisting as well to ensure that every year we improve our events and can provide the best resources to our community.
