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!

I'll never forget ACEM's professionalism: a warm welcome, the quality of information about the services and the ability of the loan committee members to listen during the interview.

It was only two months after moving to Montréal, when I decided to study at McGill. This big achievement wouldn't have been possible without ACEM’s financial support. The group is professional and the smooth workflow enables you to meet the deadlines without any delay.

Angel Perez, Venezuela
Quebec invests in immigrants and we would like to stay here and contribute to Quebec.
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.
Srinivasulu Madduri, India
I was amazed to learn that ACEM helps new immigrants to overcome the initial obstacles while trying to establish in Canada. I wanted to upgrade my skills by doing a Graduate Diploma in Clinical Research at McGill University. ACEM helped me provide the financial support in the form of a loan with a minimal prime rate which was extremely handy.
