Who We Are

Imagine a world where your birthplace doesn't limit your dreams. 🌍 That's what Passage is here to create.

We aren't just a bridge of financial support; we connect families all around the world to life-changing opportunities. We believe in a world where deserving students are able to pursue their dreams & ambitions even if their parents don't have money.

Our mission is bold but simple: by 2030 we aim to dismantle all barriers preventing brilliant minds from accessing the opportunities they deserve. Starting with the financial barriers, we're offering loans to international students and refugees, helping them pursue better education in Canada and unlock a world of possibilities - not just for themselves but for their families and future generations too.

It's important to note that we maintain an in-office working policy, and we require candidates to either reside in Toronto or be open to relocating to the area and committing to a five-day-a-week in-office schedule.
