Amazing college. I just finished my PSW Programme; which is very helpful especially for IENs to enter in the Canadian Health Care System. I am very thankful to Miss Samantha Desroches(Assistant Director), Miss Christine Chan (Program Coordinator), and Miss Sally Valdez(Professor/Trainer). Miss Samantha is very helpful, supportive, and empathetic. Miss Christine and Miss Sally are great instructors. They helped me a lot for my study as well as for finding a job.
