Jubilee Fund investors help make it possible for skilled newcomers to qualify to work in their field of expertise in Manitoba.
Recognition Counts is a program of SEED Winnipeg that provides budget planning and financial supports to skilled immigrants wishing to work in their professional field.
The program offers financial counselling and budget preparation. It also offers the opportunity to apply for a loan of up to $10,000 with Assiniboine Credit Union (ACU) to help with the cost of having qualifications recognized in Manitoba and obtaining employment in a profession or trade.
In 2013, Jubilee Fund invested $100,000 in the Recognition Counts Program. The investment complemented the Federal Government funding they had secured to capitalize a loan loss reserve fund needed to provide loans to the unsecured program participants.
