Microloan Program

The Government of Canada has established a microloan program specifically for recent immigrants to Canada. Low interest loans of up to $10,000 can be obtained to cover a number of costs related to accessing the workforce including:

  • qualification assessment
  • exam and licensure fees
  • tuition fees for training and skills upgrading
  • books and course materials
  • professional association fees
  • other costs relating to obtaining accreditation/training as required.

This program is administered by a number of organizations in Canada. For more information please visit their websites:
