Participants share their experience

“The program helped me to adjust my job skills for life here in Canada. At first I was doubtful and not so sure about how my life would be here. I guess when you're new to a country, that’s one of the fears we all have to face. But HWTC walked me through all of the challenges and helped me enhance my talents and pursue my interests. Thank you!"

"For me, the management of HWTC was able to secure a placement for me at Sheraton Gateway Hotel, located at the Pearson International Hotel, Terminal 3 on August 9, 2019. Low and behold, it was like I went for a four year course in the college in Hospitality.”
