TORONTO, Jan. 9, 2020 /CNW/ - Anderson College is saddened to announce that recent graduate Faezeh (Fran) Falsafi and her two children lost their lives in the crash of Ukrainian International Airlines flight 752. They were returning to Canada after visiting family and were among the 63 Canadians who died when the jet went down shortly after taking off from Tehran.
Ms. Falsafi recently completed Anderson College's Immigration Consultant program at the North York Campus.
