UPDATES AT EDUNOVA – June 29, 2023

2023 #WelcomingEconomy for Refugees

Tooba Shahsawar arrived from Afghanistan in 2018. When Tooba opened her first bank account in Canada at CIBC, the customer service representative was very welcoming and accommodating. Following that experience, she dreamed of working at CIBC saying, “I really wanted to be that person for someone else.” Tooba now works as an associate financial service representative with the bank.
