As part of government of Canada’s response to job creation and economic growth, the Foreign Credential Recognition (FCR) Loan Project, administered by S.U.C.C.E.S.S., was introduced to the public on February 22, 2012. For many Internationally Trained Professionals (ITPs), the cost of licensing exams, training and skills upgrading can present a significant barrier to credential recognition. Using a client-centered approach, the FCR Loan Project provides financial assistance to ITP’s to lessen some of these burdens, making it easier for ITPs to find jobs that best suit their professional skills and experiences.
The FCR team will support you by providing guidance and financial assistance to help you achieve your professional goals. Qualified applicants may apply for loans ranging from $1,500 to $15,000. If approved, a flexible and sustainable repayment schedule will be set up.
