Work environments include long-term care facilities, home health care agencies, retirement homes, residential care centres, hospices, and group homes..

The Health Care Aide program teaches students to identify and respond to patients' physical and emotional needs and to promote healthy physical and mental activity that is appropriate for the individual patient.

Financial Aid

Your education is an investment in your future. We realize that every student comes from a unique financial background, so we point you toward the financial solution that is right for you.

There are many options when it comes to financing your education, including:

  • PROVINCIAL GOVERNMENT STUDENT ASSISTANCE
  • Each provincial government has its own financial assistance programs for post-secondary students. Give us a call and we'll help you to get the ball rolling with your personal loan application process.

  • RBC ROYAL CREDIT LINE FOR STUDENTS ©
  • The Royal Credit Line for Students lets you focus on what's important: your studies. Available to full-time and part-time students who need to finance their studies, it allows you to take charge of your financial needs in a way that fits your lifestyle.

    The Royal Credit Line for Students is different from a traditional loan in that it lets you borrow funds as you need them and pay the interest on only the amount you use without ever having to reapply. You get all the convenience and benefits with no annual fee.

    As a student, you may qualify for one of RBC's best rates - Prime + 1%, which applies when you are at school and for a 12-month 'grace period' after graduation.

    Further information about financial assistance is available from the Financial Representative at your nearest CDI College campus.
