Dear Readers,

On March 16th, we were honored to host graduation for over 150 Health Care Assistant, Community Support Worker and Activity Assistant graduates and their families and friends. What an amazing celebration for all in attendance!

Our valedictorians Christina and Harsharan shared inspiring messages of their own personal journeys, and how proud they were to achieve this new milestone with their classmates.

Our Commencement speaker was Mr Daniel Fontaine, CEO of BC Care Providers Association. He welcomed our recent graduates to the industry, and reassured everyone that the job demand today is very strong, and will continue to grow in the years ahead.

All indicators are pointing in the same direction….

“We highly regard Community Support Work related schooling/credentials when making hiring decisions. The schooling indicates to us that applicants have some systematic training in the field and are passionate about quality care; this means they are likely to be high performers and stay longer because they fully understand what the job involves. Retention is a huge consideration, those that are likely to stay longer will always be highly sought after as it takes time to build working relationships and relationships with person served.”

Success Story

I had a fantastic experience at Drake Medox College, as I found the instructors very knowledgeable, the quality of the training rooms to be so realistic to actual facilities and the Drake staff incredibly helpful and friendly. I now feel more than capable of taking the right steps to achieve my goal in becoming a health care assistant and building a great career for myself...I would recommend them to all my family and friends. I now look forward to starting a new and exciting career. Thank you Drake Medox College!
