Growing roots in Canada
Levon Afeyan came to Canada at the age of 15, fleeing the civil war in his native Lebanon. Today, the successful entrepreneur who owns a curved plywood manufacturing business in Montreal is helping dozens of refugees who have fled the ongoing civil war in Syria.
Over 40 Syrian refugees work at Afeyan’s family-owned company Seatply Products Inc. Afeyan is also an active member of the Armenian community in Canada. Mr. Afeyan talks with RCI’s Levon Sevunts about his journey, the lessons he has learned along the way and the advice he has for others who follow in his footsteps.
