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.

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!
