Pablo Listingart arrived in Canada from Argentina in 2015, leaving behind a successful career working in IT. In 2016, he established @ComITorg, a non-profit organization which provides free training courses to people who may not be able to afford them.

Read the story of an internationally-trained professional from Nigeria who received a Windmill loan and quickly secured a job in his field. His financial journey was featured in @letsstrive_, a Canadian initiative that aims to create a thriving society.

‘Untapped Potential,’ a new report from @RBC Economics, indicates that Canada needs to close the $50B a year immigrant wage gap. This is the issue Windmill was created to address, and we’re proud to support newcomers in achieving career success in Canada.

With ambitions for their students to become global citizens, @StPatricksOCSB reached out to the Memory Project. Students were connected with – and created sketches of – their peers in refugee camps in Afghanistan. The result? A rewarding project for all.

Mohamad Fakih (@mohamadfakih8), an immigrant from Lebanon and owner of @ParamountFoods, created a successful restaurant chain. However, his success goes beyond profit. Paramount is committed to hiring refugees at each restaurant to help change lives.

The Windmill team had a great time at @CPA_Ontario's #Networking4Success event this weekend! It was wonderful to meet with some extraordinary future CPAs, and we are proud to support them during their journeys to professional re-accreditation in Canada.

Faced with a labour shortage in #AtlanticCanada, this company got creative! @steeleauto, headquartered in #Dartmouth, and is offering a financial incentive to those who want to move to any of its locations throughout the Atlantic region.
