Support that means a lot to me

I immigrated to Quebec from Africa in May 2015, leaving behind my spouse and my 2-year-old son. Thanks to the job I found, we were finally reunited in October 2016. Since then, I have worked hard to achieve my dream of becoming a CPA and your support has really helped me keep going. Thank you! I promise to make the necessary efforts to achieve my objective.

Happy and grateful for this essential support

  • Gabriel Ndongo-Seye 
I arrived in Quebec in 2016 and have studied full time since the summer of 2017 in the hopes of finishing my DESS in the summer 2020 session. Everything was going according to plan until the pandemic arrived, and I had to work at home with my spouse and 4 children aged 4 to 12. My stress level rose due to many unforeseen circumstances. That is why I am extremely grateful; the support given to me was crucial to continuing on my path toward the CPA designation.

  •  Felix Remillard 
Social involvement and the quality of my academic record have always been important to me.

Continuing to perform academically while participating in these activities was still a huge challenge during this busy year of my bachelor’s program. I feel fortunate that my efforts have been rewarded in this way.
