From job finding club service helping only Chinese Immigrants to prepare resumes, SES is now a culturally diverse service team providing career development guidance services for all job seekers. Based on social work values, SES has incorporated a client-centered, behavioural oriented case management model to serve clients. In addition to various programs and services, SES has also developed a virtual resource website to give job seekers easy access to online resources. This range has made SES more accessible and user friendly.

With a diverse team of qualified, skilled and passionate staff in multiple locations, SES delivers services in a culturally sensitive manner to job seekers regardless of their cultural background and level of English language skills.

FCR Loan Project

The SUCCESS Foreign Credential Recognition (FCR) Loan Project is a S.U.C.C.E.S.S. initiative, sponsored by the Government of Canada to help Internationally Trained Professionals work in their field of expertise in Canada.

To be eligible for our program you must be a Canadian citizen, permanent resident or confirmed protected refugee who is resident in BC, has foreign credentials and requires a loan to support their accreditation/credentialing plan.

Our Project supports clients with active case management, the preparation of an accreditation plan, offering of workshops, mentoring and coaching, networking and connection with peers, associations and people in the same field who are aiming to get their credentials recognised.

Once a client’s needs are ascertained, we offer a competitive loan through our financial partners Vancity to cover the costs and expenses of the listed stages and steps in the accreditation plan. The loan is only eligible for things associated with your credentialing and accreditation e.g. books, courses, trainings, workshops and exams, it cannot be used for living cost or anything not FCR related.

The loan is within the range of $1,000.00 – $15,000.00 depending on each client’s needs, it is Prime + 2% and repayment to Vancity is immediate upon disbursement with up to 48 months repayment period depending on the total amount disbursed and the clients financial ability.

The first step to joining the program is booking an appointment with a case manager at our office and coming in for registration and assessment to determine your needs and how we can help you.
