Our Testimonials

I came to Canada through the CUAET program and was not well-prepared for immigration or socialization into society. Of course, great opportunities opened up for me, but many problems arose; I needed financial assistance and help in finding a job. In all this, the FCR Program was very successful for me. I used the FCR program, and they helped me with a financial loan to pay for my education and advanced training. They also assisted me in choosing courses and provided help with finding work. I am very grateful to the PICS organization and the FCR program for the assistance provided and the work done. What the PICS organization and the FCR program do is very important for newcomers and those who find themselves in difficult situations. I highly recommend the PICS organization and thank you again for the support provided.

I want to express my deep gratitude to the FCR counselor and the entire team for their support in every aspect. In June 2023, I relocated to Prince George, BC, as a chef at the Guru Nanak Darbar Sikh Temple. As I am working towards my long-term career goal, I realized that I needed to build my resume according to Canadian standards. During this uncertain time, I had a chance to see the FCR flyer on the resource room in the temple. Without hesitation, I contacted the provided number and scheduled a meeting with the Prince George's counselor. He walked me through the FCR services and helped me fill out my application. Upon registration, he built my professional resume according to the Canadian standard. I am now confident with my resume and started applying for jobs. I am actively working towards employment opportunities and will update good news to my counselor in Prince George's. I am very thankful for the services I have received from FCR which helped my motivation, confidence, and working towards my career goal. Once again, I want to say thank you so much for the FCR services.

I took FCR Loan to secure my tuition fee for pursuing Master’s at UBC to work towards my career goal, which is to become a professor. Timely response and dedication from the counsellors helped me navigate the complex process of securing a loan with a lower interest rate, and I am grateful. Thanks to PICS-FCR again for renewing my hope, I am on the path of pursuing my educational goals again with high motivation. Thank you so much.

Since I came to Canada 2014, I was trying to find a way to prove myself. To be a dentist in Canada is costly. However, I had to go this hard way, I started already doing my exams, successfully finished two of them but It was hard for me to go to the last step without the FCR program. They helped me a lot, by giving me clear clues about my main plan as well as the alternative ones. When I applied for the loan, in less than 24h, I got the approval and in less than 3 days, the money was already in my account, ready to go. When you get the loan, theoretically, you think job is done.  No, it did not. FCR program will be still supporting you tremendously by sending you all the events and the opportunities that might be helpful for you. I’m really grateful for them and without them, I would not be able to move forward Big Thank you"

I feel by my heart that I was so lucky that PICS staff had saved my e-mail after I visited their desk in a job fair and had a short conversation with them. I immigrated to Canada with a 25 year experience of being a clinical psychiatrist and at the same time an associate professor of psychiatry. Although it was distressing to fell behind all my brilliant professional history, but to support my family financially I employed as a driver in my entry career to Canadian job market. I had given up to follow my dream of being a psychiatrist in Canada because of having no support by the time that I was informed about the “FCR Loan Program” by the compassionate and hardworking PICS office members. I appreciate greatly the staff’s efforts and especially Meena Verma kind advices, notifications, and follow ups for providing me the loan. Meena helped me to have my confidence back and directed me to go for my genuine and beloved profession of psychiatry by registering for MCCQ exams and working hard for it.
