Noura Zaina

Noura is a Program Manager for the Local Poverty Reduction Fund at the Ontario Trillium Foundation. She holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Business Management and Information Systems from the French University in Egypt. Although she worked in exciting marketing and sales at multinational and Fortune 500 companies, her affinity to community building and passion for people's development was inevitable, which led her to delve into the non-profit sector, creating herself the Public Relations and Development Officer role at the Canadian Arab Institute. Her ability in building, strengthening relationships and connecting with people enabled her to assist Arabic-speaking newcomers to Canada through her position as Settlement Counselor at the Afghan Women's Organization. She co-founded the Professional Canadian Arab Network (PCAN). Noura is Palestinian Canadian, born and raised in Egypt and lived most of her life there as a refugee. Noura is tri-lingual and strongly interested in issues related to identity, diversity, integration and personal and professional development. In 2016, she contributed a chapter to the anthology, An Arab Women's Notebook, which launched at Ben McNally's bookstore in Toronto.
