IAF's Vision: Skilled immigrants are equitably integrated into the workforce and contributing their expertise to Canada's economic and social success.
About Our Charity
Immigrant Access Fund Canada supports newcomers who arrive in our country equipped with excellent professional skills and knowledge but face significant barriers to employment. Often they fall into poverty as they become stuck in unemployment or low paying "survival" jobs.
IAF provides micro loans of up to $10,000 to internationally trained immigrants through a community-based program. Loans may be used for exam fees, travel costs to sit an exam, books and course materials, qualification assessments, professional association fees, living allowance while studying, and other costs related to becoming able to work in their field.
IAF relies on donations from individuals and organizations in order to fulfill our mandate. Please consider making a one-time or monthly donation today.
