F.F, Syria

Architect

“As a recent immigrant to Quebec from Syria, I faced many challenges looking for a job. I needed to have my architecture degree certified and the expenses were high. “La Maisonnée” referred me to ACEM since they have a program called "Foreign Credential Recognition Loans". I was able to start the process of my certificate and later on find a job!

Virginia Stikeman

Investor and volunteer since 2007

I feel that the funds I invest can give people a chance to be creative, to learn new business skills, help create jobs, and just spread the money around! ACEM also works to enable accreditation of skills for people coming from outside of Canada, a project I particularly support.

Without ACEM, we would have cut jobs and stopped all activities. We are very satisfied of the speed of work with which ACEM answered our needs as well as other community organizations.

Immigrants come to this country in the hope of a better life in terms of job and salary. Their resources are limited and getting a job and taking professional exams is hard. The role of ACEM’s microcredit has helped me greatly.
