Research suggests that your chances of finding employment double if you re-train in Canada. But as a new immigrant, education programs can stretch your finances.
These financial assistance programs tell you how you may be able to cover your education costs:
- Immigrant Access Fund (IAF)
An IAF loan can help if you are a newcomer and needing assistance to pay for the costs of the Canadian licensing or training you need so you can work in your pre-immigration career.
- Part-time Canada student loan
Government student loans are based on an assessment of your financial need. Qualified part-time students in Canada could get federal loans and part-time student grants.
