New relationship leverages the strengths of each organization to help promising students, from around the world, access world-class banking and financing products

TORONTO, June 26, 2024 /CNW/ - TD and MPOWER Financing have announced a collaboration to help simplify the banking experience for international students pursuing higher education in Canada. MPOWER Financing ("MPOWER"), a mission-driven fintech firm and a leader in international student financing, announced that it is working with TD, the second-largest bank in Canada and sixth largest in North America by assets, to offer a suite of financial resources needed to help create a seamless banking experience for students on their journey to Canada.

As part of this collaboration, TD would be MPOWER's preferred bank for the thousands of students pursuing a degree at one of the universities that MPOWER supports through its no-cosigner international student loan program in Canada. The TD International Student Banking Package offers access to an array of banking products and services that helps support international students as they transition to post-secondary education in Canada.

"We're delighted to work with a large and reputed financial organization such as TD to better support international students' financial needs in Canada," said Manu Smadja, CEO and co-founder of MPOWER Financing. "Our students - who pursue master's degrees from top Canadian institutions - will benefit from the range of financial products, including chequing accounts, savings accounts, and credit cards, that TD can provide them as they begin their journeys in Canada. This collaboration is the latest example of how MPOWER supports students beyond education funding with access to adequate financial products, career guidance, and student visa support."

"At TD, we are committed to making things less complicated for students from across the world on their journey to study in Canada," said Janice Farrell Jones, Senior Vice President, Everyday Banking, Saving & Investing at TD. "That's why we're so thrilled to be working with MPOWER to help simplify international students' transition to the Canadian banking system.
