Alumni Testimonials

A Satisfied Student of Our Culinary Training Program
My experience at this college has not only help me to grow professionally, but also personally. One thing I admire Abou being enrolled in this college is that the Executive Director, Miss Christine Demo played the role in making me the person who I am today and I am grateful and will always be. She played the role just as a mom who was there and still is there to support, advise, and motivates me. She taught me the things that would help me in my work and in personal life.

My name is Matt Brazeau and I had the amazing opportunity to take the Specialist Chef course at Affirm College. The first thing you will notice is how much the staff care about you and make you feel like everyone is family. I had the opportunity to learn from some amazing chefs and was challenged on a daily basis which allowed me to hone my craft. I had a fantastic experience and am now proud to say that I am a Chef! Thanks for everything!

I am now proud to say that I am a Sous Chef at Dundas Valley Golf and Curling Club. If I had not been my training experience at Liaison College and them helping me to feed my passion, I would not be where I am today. I would like to personally thank the Director of Liaison College in Hamilton and Oakville area, Mrs. Christine Demko and her team for making a difference in my life. God bless you.
