To help more immigrants achieve professional success in Canada, Windmill Microlending is pleased to partner with triOS College and Eastern College, two Canadian-owned and operated private career educational institutions.
This new partnership will support Windmill’s efforts to significantly increase the availability of its low-interest microloans for immigrants and refugees who need credentials or licensing to continue in their profession, additional education or training to start a new career, or professional development to help them advance. It also helps both colleges to support newcomers seeking to access better job opportunities based on their skills and qualifications.
“Windmill has a long history of helping skilled immigrants and refugees achieve professional success in Canada,” says Claudia Hepburn, CEO of Windmill Microlending. “With the financial support of Windmill, more newcomers will be able to study and train at triOS College and Eastern College, making their career aspirations possible and increasing their earning potential.”
“Our partnership with Windmill Microlending will enable us to assist new Canadians in acquiring additional funding to start their new careers. triOS College and Eastern College believe education is essential, especially to those who need help pursuing and developing their careers in Canada. We are honoured to have the opportunity to provide those options to our students,” said Stuart Bentley, President, triOS College and Eastern College.
