Our Testimonials

I am writing to express my extreme gratitude to PICS-Foreign Credential Recognition (PICS-FCR) program for the guidance and financial support provided by the career and financial counselor. I took FCR Loan to secure my tuition fee for pursuing a Master’s at UBC to work towards my career goal: becoming a professor. Timely response and dedication from the counselors 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.

"It was a very fast process with Progressive Intercultural Community Services (PICS) and Vancity Bank for the personal loan program. After my application, the process was completed within couple of weeks then I got my loan. Although the loan was not to what I applied, but the rate of interest and processing charges were very much minimal too."
Nader Asad (FCR)

"I am so grateful that I was connected with FCR. They were so helpful. I had the deadline and they were so considerate and made all the arrangements within a week. I was connected with Vancouver Career counsellor, a very humble lady. She is remarkable, she explained me everything even the rate dropped after my loan was approved but before I signed it, so she made sure that I get that new rate applied. She went far and beyond. Very Thankful to her and FCR."

"I would like to thank all FCR family for helping me getting back on track. As an immigrant in Canada, you need to adjust everything and adapt its weather, culture and even their education system. Being a Registered Nurse back home, I wanted to pursue and continue my study here in Canada but the system here is very much different from back home. FCR family helped me, encouraged and motivated me to get my license here as an RN. I might still be in progress but I wouldn't be here where I am now without their help and I am so grateful that they believed in me. To all Foreign Professionals, don't lose hope. FCR family will always be there to help everyone of us."  Czarina

"I am very grateful for the help I have received from the FCR program. From the casual inquiry email to finalization of the FCR assistance, FCR program has resolved my each and every query. Now, It will cater to my dream to be a licenced Pharmacist in Canada. I came to know about FCR assistance via University of British Columbia website and I must say it changed my course of life. With FCR assistance I can envision myself as a future pharmacist in Canada. And I hope lots of international graduate like me get to know about the program which is the real HOPE!! Thanks to PICS-FCR program and the Entire PICS team who made it possible!!"
Prachi Singh – (FCR)

"FCR program is great for helping internationally trained newcomers to be connected with professionals here in Canada. It helps them to get an idea about the Canadian workplace culture and expectations. People who are trained from other countries can adapt faster to life in Canada, and reduce the time of job searching and getting qualified, with the help and support from FCR."

I had the privilege of participating in an exceptional online webinar hosted by the PICS Society- Foreign Credential Recognition Program which is funded by the Federal Government of Canada. The focus of the webinar was to equip skilled newcomers with the essential interview skills needed to shine and excel in their professional journey. I must say, it was an enlightening experience. Under the expert guidance of our remarkable speaker, the webinar surpassed all expectations.

J.D, Firstly, I would like to thank you for helping me with the nervousness and stress of getting a job in Canada. I really appreciate the way you understood my level of anxiety and brought me comfort by saying, ''this is a time to applaud and calm yourself as you will get a job and there is nothing to stress out, not many people are as ready as you are.'' This really helped and brought my diminishing confidence. :) I enjoyed our discussion with you where I could bring all my concerns to the table, and how we should address them one by one. Overall I am pleased to be connected with you via PICS where I know who to approach when in doubt.

Hi J.D, It was great meeting with you on 6th Dec. First of all, thank you for taking time out of your day. I truly appreciated all the motivation and advice you gave me. I was inspired by you a lot. I am looking forward to learning more from you. I will definitely do my best to improve my skills with your help.

Hello JD, It was my great pleasure to have a meeting with you today. I have met some job coaches and case managers from other organizations before you, but we are totally different from them and literally exceptional. I could feel that you really understand me and my situation. I also appreciate your very specific and doable advice on the further step in preparing me to get the proper job. Thank you again!
