Microloan Program

There are microloan programs at several organizations, supported by the Government of Canada and other partnering agencies, which cater to recent immigrants to Canada. Low interest loans of up to $15,000 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.
