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.

The human being is at the heart of the intervention of ACEM, and the organization offers attention and support to maximize their chances of success. This is an important way to fight poverty in Montreal. That's why I chose to support the work ACEM by becoming an investor.

ACEM's work isn't just to give loans, it's also a great team totally dedicated to the entrepreneurs they financed.

Virginia Stikeman

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.
