The Atlantic Immigrant Career Loan Fund (AICLF), launched in May 2019, is a community-based micro-loan program. The AICLF helps internationally-trained immigrants in Atlantic Canada overcome financial barriers to becoming licensed to practice and entering the workforce in their occupations or related or other fields. The AICLF gives immigrants in regulated and unregulated professions access to loans of up to $15,000 at a low interest rate.
The Atlantic Immigration Career Loan Fund also guides immigrants to establish an action plan towards working in Atlantic Canada. It is coordinated regionally by the Immigrant Services Association of Nova Scotia (ISANS) in partnership with Atlantic counterparts from across the region, including the New Brunswick Multicultural Council (NBMC), the Multicultural Association of Fredericton (MCAF), the Multicultural Association of the Greater Moncton Area (MAGMA) and the YMCA of Greater Saint John.
