Testimony

As a direct result of the MAIB, I gained employment with one of Canada's leading financial institutions
Martin Vice-President of the Loan Product Group, Bank of Canada

It dramatically increased my employment prospects and opened the door to many more possibilities than before and at a much higher level. As a direct result of the MAIB, I gained employment with one of Canada's leading financial institutions and today, about eight years later, I am the youngest VP in Corporate Banking.
