We can help finance your qualification recognition in Alberta

Many qualified professionals who immigrate to Alberta face significant barriers that prevent them from working in their field even if they have been practicing for years outside of Alberta. Associated costs include licensing and certification, exam fees and education upgrading.

Servus Credit Union, in partnership with The Government of Alberta and the Bredin Centre for Career Advancement, is committed to help you break down these barriers. Through our Servus-Bredin Microloan for Newcomer Professionals we can help put your skills and training to work in Alberta.
