Hi Guys!!  

Just want to say thank you so much for all your support. I got a great job (started work at Investment Planning Counsel as a Transition Specialist ). Your support meant so much.

To Liz, your coaching helped me to land this awesome opportunity.  To Louisa, the way you believed in me kept me strong and confident.  To all the others (please pass this email onto Desiree and Jay too, I don't have their email addresses) a heartfelt thanks for all your help and patience during my stay at AOL.

Oh, and I can now say to you that I am the person who circulated those Christmas cards a year ago smileysmileysmileysmiley.  It was only to encourage all of you and I pray that you take those encouraging words with you wherever life takes you.

I know the cleaner, Maria, may not see this but she knows me and she knows how much I loved her.  Please give her my regards also.

Once again thanks to you all.

Best regards

I have had a great experience at AOL. Being a new immigrant here in Canada, I had some fears and apprehensions - I wasn't sure if I could really get that career I want in this country. I started my journey here at AOL, and with the vast resources available I was able to understand and gain the "Canadian Experience" that employers are always looking for. 

I am hired, even though I haven't received my diploma. My application was considered as the employers knew AOL.

Thank you so much AOL

I want to express my sincere gratitude for the staff’s effort during my study here. Honestly, when I started at the college, I was a new comer, I really had no idea what I wanted to do in this new environment. It took me quite a while to adjust but I looked forward to my courses every week.  I really appreciated that the college helped and guided me with my new life here, and I’m very glad that I have chosen the best one. I want to say “thank you” to Desiree, Niyati, Simin, and all the facilitators! But above all, I want to thank my instructor David and his English class. I couldn’t wait to be in his class on Thursdays, every session was with new subjects and surprises. When I was struggling with myself, he gave me confidence, he reminded me that I was not alone in this new second home town.

Academy of Learning College is not just a college but also a home – with a warm atmosphere, where you can always be understood and supported, and most importantly, where you can be educated. My affection for this college started from the first day I arrived and stayed with me until today.
I want to express my gratitude to Liliana Mitrea, who is the best teacher I have ever had. I learned so much from her and saw for myself how much she cares for her students.
I also want to thank Desiree Karandashova for her astonishing patience, for taking the time to listen to her students and to help her students when it was needed.
Academy of Learning College at Bay & Bloor is a special place -- always friendly,  such a great environment in which to learn. To the entire college staff, the directors, teachers and instructors: thanks for all your hard work, for making each student feel special and for getting to know each of us personally.

From: The A.M. Personal Support Worker Class (July 2010)
To our dear teacher, Ms. Liliana Mitrea
When we were just starting out on this course, we felt a little nervous.
On the course orientation day, we sat quietly, listening to all said, but somewhere in the back of our minds, we were quietly asking ourselves, “Dear God, will we be able to go through it, let alone finish it?”
Well, suffice to say, we did make it halfway through, but of course, we are not there yet! But in our hearts, dear Ms. Liliana, we know that with your unparalleled help and support, boundless energy and sparkling wit, we’ll be out and about in a special way -- making sure we’ve applied all that we learned from the book and a bundle of tips from you!
But for now, let us show our gratitude and offer our unanimous and heartfelt “thank you” for all the time we spent with you. Learning with and from you was fun and full of laughter. We’ll be seeing you every now and then but we know it won’t be as often as we’d like. We hope to come back here someday to tell you our big news: that we are all successful and have madee it to that elusive Finish Line!
God Bless you, Ms. Mitrea and thank you!

My promotion from counselor to an Executive Director position within my placement
I chose to study to become a Community Social Service Worker at Academy of Learning College Bay/Bloor Campus to start a career in a humanitarian organization, where I could use my talent, skills and experience along with education that I received from Academy of Learning to help people in need.
I started my placement as a Community Social Service student worker at Canadian Human Rights International Organization (CHRIO) located at 1725 Finch Avenue west, on December 19, 2011.  The existing organization is a non-profit organization.
However, from the very beginning days of working at CHRIO I start to think and ask myself questions, for example: How may I will be able to help the clients and this organization?  What skills, education and experience do I have in hand?
I researched and found that the key to success are as follows:
  1. Setting up a goal (to develop positive planning)
  2. Understand the challenge and knowledge
  3. Use of education, experience and talent
  4. Positive attitude 
  5. Action
I worked very hard and committed to bring positive change to the CHIRO. I respected my job and accepted any challenges that I faced because I see the challenges as opportunities. When I faced difficulties, I would ask questions, do research and discuss the matter with my colleagues or supervisor. I was doing my job and also giving feedback, making suggestions and giving ideas to improve the services and better help the clients. I did more than what was expected from me, but always with the approval of the board of directors and my supervisor.
About three weeks ago, on March 5, 2012, Mr. Mario Guilombo, the Vice Chair President, called me and said that the boards of directors were very happy with my performance and offered me a position at the Canadian Human Rights International Organization, as an Executive Director. He added that the board took this decision based on my knowledge, commitment, skills and passion.
I was very excited. I know it is a huge responsibility, but I am confident that I am able to take this responsibility and carry it out to the best of my ability.
I would like to thank the staff at Academy of Learning College Bay/Bloor Campus for helping and supporting me and giving me a chance to prove myself and live up to my abilities. I would like to thank specially Ms Niyati, the education counselor, for her advice and for directing me in right educational field. Ms. Rhonda Schiller, who was one of my instructors, shared her experiences and worked very hard to educate us. I learned so much from her. Mr. Paul Denman, my placement coordinator, worked very hard to help all of his students to gaining important skills, like resume writing and interviewing skills. He also taught us to understand our responsibilities and duties and it’s he who guided me to the organization that I’m at now.
You can visit the new web page for the Canadian Human Rights International Organization at If you click on “our team”, and then executive board, you’ll see my name at the top of staff list.

Yesterday was my last day at Academy of Learning College Bay/Bloor Campus and I would like to thank everyone for your day-to-day help, encouragement and support.
Last year I chose this school because I was new to Canada,  I realized that if I wanted a future in this country, I had to study, and I had to obtain a degree.  I’m so happy that I have a Business Administrative Diploma and I am employed.  I had a friend at the LINC class who recommended Academy of Learning College to me. She knew that I’d improve my English, I would learn accounting, computer and office skills and get the diploma I needed.
Many Thanks to
  • Heather Jennifer Yang (Director) and Mihkel Ranniste (Principal) for your wonderful staff.

Gratitude is one of the nicest feelings a heart can have. It’s a feeling that comes along for a very special reason, and it’s a lovely thought that never goes away once it enters in. It joins together with precious memories and grateful hopes.  Gratitude lives on, not for just a moment or a day, but through all the seasons that lie ahead. My feelings of gratitude are especially sweet ones when it comes to thinking of all the things you do. You deserve to receive so many smiles, such an abundance of joys, and so much generosity reflected right back at you. That’s why I hope you’ll always remember my appreciation for everything you’ve done, and my endless gratitude. Thanks so much!

Hey guys,
How are you?  Guess what! I got hired by Esprit and I’m doing payroll for stores in Quebec, BC, NS, Ont., and Alberta! It’s a learning experience and a lot to take in, but I know I’ll succeed. I’m their Payroll coordinator, and they’ve made me feel very welcome in the company. I’m doing a six-month contract and after the probation, they’ll review my performance and then hopefully take me on indefinitely.
I just wanted to give a big thank you to everyone at Academy of Learning College Bay/Bloor Campus, especially Judi, Matthew, Sherine, Mary Jane, Marcela, Winnie, Heather and Mihkel. You guys really helped me and gave me such great advice and help.  I remember on the day of my interview, you were all very supportive and Judi spent time with me and helped correct my resume. This shows what a great team you are and how you care for all of us. Keep up the good work and please keep in touch as I will never forget all of you guys!

I love my job and find it very exciting. I’ve met a lot of new people. For the first three days I was training in the Client Liaison’s office just to see how the systems work. They were 8 hour days and today I am doing a 12 hour shift in the pre-admitting for emergency. It is all so exciting and everyone here is really impressed with all the medical knowledge that I have.  I can only say, it is because of you and the courses I took at Academy of Learning College. You gave me confidence and it made me believe that I can accomplish anything. I think any future students who take this course should know that, even though the work is very challenging and difficult, it really pays off in the end. They should also know that Bonnie is truly wonderful and very understanding when it comes to the work load. I will stay in touch with you and continue to give you updates on my new career.
Thanks for everything!
