I'm seriously looking at two culinary schools in Vancouver, BC, Canada:
Northwest Culinary Academy
Pacific Institute of Culinary Arts
My goal is to become a chef in the health care sector, specifically elder care/nursing homes, but I am not opposed to other options in that field. I'm not as motivated to go into the traditional restaurant business, long term, but I am aware that may be a necessity for experience building.
I live in the U.S. (California) right now, and I'm looking to relocate/migrate to either Western Canada, Australia, or New Zealand. The aforementioned schools are closest to where I currently live. Junior/Community colleges in my state (California) are cutting programs left and right due to tremendous budget cuts year after year. Plus the time frame in which it would take to complete a culinary program would be at least 2 years. That's a bit longer than I care to spend at this point in my life.
I would appreciate any comments on the above listed schools if anyone has any knowledge of them, or a suggestion on where to find some reviews. I've had little to no luck on Google. Most of the results from Google leads me back to this forum! (Perhaps for good reason, I hope).
