If it is difficult to pay for the costs for licensing or training so you can return to work in your profession, Immigrant Access Fund is a community lending program focused on helping immigrants, including refugees.

You can borrow up to $10,000 to cover:

  • Qualification assessments
  • Short-term training (less than two years)
  • Exam fees, including travel expenses
  • Professional association fees
  • Course materials
  • Employment-focused language training

An Immigrant Access Fund loan can help if you are completing your licensing or professional learning, especially if you have low income and little or no Canadian credit history or collateral.

Banks and other financial institutions also provide financing options.
