Firstly, I would like to wish all of you a happy Family Day! It is indeed fitting that I write this note to you today as I very much felt like I was part of a large family while at the ABC Access Business College.


Along with learning innumerable valuable skills that would later lead to my current employment, I was deeply touched with the warm atmosphere and the the special bonds that were created with many of the faculty and students. The ongoing support, patience, and guidance from the teachers provided the ultimate environment where one could navigate through the rigours of instruction, assignments, and tests, and feel that they had the wind behind their backs and that success was not a distant notion, but rather a very near point that would be reached with the help of all these wonderful people.


In my current position, I am undertaking responsibilities in a field that is very new to me, and I have to say it is great to be part of the working society. I feel young and vibrant, and once again there is a spring in my step, and this all happened through the help of the Ontario Government and your administration and teachers. Much of the world knows Canada is a great nation, one of the many reasons that it is great is because, as I've personally experience, this country gives people of my age a second chance to become productive members of society. For this I'm very grateful - thank you Canada!


Once again, special thanks Sonia for all of your encouragement and faith in each and every single student. You are a very blessed and talented human being, and I pray that you may continue to be blessed with good health, happiness and prosperity.


Best Regards,

Found an amazing job working for a Landlord downtown and take care of 250 units. A friend recommended me for this position, it is very important to network.


The course that J P taught in regards to the Property Management was extremely useful. I have dealt with the Landlord and Tenant Board on St. Clair where J P took us to see the court cases live. I have done many evictions notices, which we also practiced in class. I enjoy this job very much and I am extremely pleased of how what we were taught was important to my current job.


Thank you to all the teacher’s: David for the accounting which is very helpful dealing with the rents and adjustments. Isaac for all the tips on how to use the excel and word which came in very handy.  Peter for teaching the Law course, which comes in handy. Terick for the Marketing, which I use all the time when leasing out  units and advertising them and have been very successful. A big thank you to Sonia for pushing to get me to the College and through the grant program.


Wishing the graduating class all the success in their field of choice.
