About Liaison College Oakville
Welcome to Liaison College, Canada’s largest private culinary arts school. Liaison College Oakville has built an enviable reputation training some of the best chefs in Canada, and now, with your help we are trying to do the same thing for Syrian refugees.
Liaison College Oakville Working in the Community
In partnership with the Halton Multicultural Council, Liaison College Oakville is pleased to announce the Job-Ready Recipe initiative in support of Syrian refugees. The Job-Ready Recipe program is a streamlined, fast-tracked culinary training program for Syrian refugees, that teaches newcomers basic cooking skills, and then connects them to local employers, and other support services to ease their transition into work.
Liaison College Oakville is further supporting these refugee students through a bursary program, with the remainder of course fees coming from public, private and corporate benefactors. The goal of the program is to provide these newcomers to Canada with stable jobs in an in-demand industry to allow them to become self-sufficient and engaged in Canadian life as quickly as possible. If you would like to make a fully-tax deductible donation to the program through the Halton Multicultural Council, please CLICK HERE TO DONATE.
