I am the founder and director of TLC Edmonton: Training for In-home Caregivers. We have been preparing a small number of foreign students (of which a sizeable percentage have always been Japanese) to work in Canada as nannies and home support workers for the past 10 years.
We pride ourselves on offering a high degree of individual support to all students (current and graduated) who are open to receiving it. We also offer reasonably priced, convenient housing for all current students who want it as well as a few of our graduates.

私自身が、この学校の2006年度の卒業生です。在学中から、移民の夢への可能性を与えてくれるこの学校を、もっと多くの日本人に知ってもらいたいと思っていました。生徒数は多くないので、大変アットホームな雰囲気の中で、学生同士も同じ夢に向かって皆仲良く、楽しく学んでいます。
本校は、ケアギバーの仕事を通して、移民を目指している人を対象としたカナダでは数少ない専門学校です。ナニー、老人介護、障害者介護の3分野について勉強し、卒業後のケアギバーの仕事では、自分の向いている分野をどれでも選べます。クラスの中で、履歴書作成、仕事探し、面接練習、ビザ申請とその必要書類についても、カバーします。
また卒業後もフォ ローアップがあります。また、毎週の料理クラスでは、あらゆる国の料理を学び、試食します。多くの学生が楽しんでいる科目の一つです。その他、リサイクル施設、州議事堂の見学などの課外授業、感謝祭のお祝いのお食事などの楽しみも色々とあります。卒業後、移民後の現在も、級友との交友、学校との関係は続いています。学生にとって本校は、カナダでの生活の初めの第一歩の足場であり、その後末永くカナダでの生活の大切な拠り所となっています。

I graduated from TLC Edmonton in March,2012.
After that, I worked as a Live-in Nanny for more than two years and I currently applied for permanent residency. I couldn’t have gone this far without my teacher’s help. I can’t stop feeling that choosing this school was one of the best decision I made in my life.
What I liked about this school was getting a lot of support from my teacher, Shirley. She gave me useful advice and a lot of encouragement when I was having hard time finding a job, and she was always there to support us.
Even after graduating from the school and start working as a nanny, she kept supporting me when I needed a help and advice from her.

Learning a wide range of topics made me certain that being a nanny would suit me. Since I love cooking, I enjoyed cooking classes to learn not only north American dishes but other counties dishes as well. Getting to know the differences of cooking between Japan and Canada definitely helped me to work as a nanny.  We also had presentation assignments during the class which I found challenging as I had never done it before. However, they were absolutely worth doing it because students gain self-confidence and improve their English skills.  Every thing I learned was so meaningful and Shirley’s help was beyond my expectation.
I am so grateful to find this school and am proud of being a student at TLC Edmonton.

class-photo-outside・Nutrition
・Health & Safety
・Recognizing and Preventing Abuse.

A highlight of most of the student’s week is cooking class during which they prepare a wide variety of foods enjoyed in Canada and then together eat the “fruits of their labour”.
Additionally, we teach job finding skills and the rights and responsibilities of foreign workers in Canada. We prepare our students to complete the various application forms and document preparation that will be required at various stages of their journey.
Finally, we are here to provide on-going support any time they need it both while they are a student and throughout their time as a foreign worker.
