Featured Partners

Windmill partners with over 1000+ organizations across the country who are working to support newcomers to Canada as they settle, strive and succeed.

Without their referrals, we could not have reached the thousands of clients we have served since 2005. We are grateful to the public and private educational institutions, regulatory bodies, settlement and employment agencies we coordinate with to foster employment related opportunities for skilled immigrants and refugees through our loan program. Our Featured Partner page gives us a chance to highlight some of our most fruitful relationships.
