“I take this opportunity to appreciate and thank the FCR Program and Counsellor who guided me to get through financial assistance in the form of a study loan from Vancity. The overall process was well guided and my counsellor left no stone unturned to make it happen even in the midst of hard times (covid-19 pandemic). She is so good and cooperative that my words may fall short to describe her assistance provided at each step. I have high regards for PICS which provided me with the services of such helpful and friendly staff members. I highly recommend PICS to all newcomers. It is just like a second home for them who need proper guidance, education and assistance in the very initial years of their settlement in Canada.”
