Travel College Canada is approved by Second Career in Ontario to accept those who are approved by Second Career for program funding assistance.
Second Career is a government program administered by the Ministry of Colleges and Universities (Ontario). Other provinces and territories have similar programs, please check with your local office. Second Career is designed to help workers who have been laid off, currently unemployed, underemployed, and/or working less than 20 hours a week.
The Second Career cost-sharing grant helps those who qualify to train for a new career in growing areas of the economy which includes the travel and tourism industry. Studies show there is a shortage of well-trained, knowledgeable travel professionals which makes travel, tourism, and hospitality a great career choice.
The Process – please read to ensure understanding – The website below explains the SC program in more detail. There is a section where you can enter your Postal Code to find the closest Assessment Centre to contact and book an appointment with a SC counsellor to help determine eligibility for any/all funding.
Following your initial appointment, your SC counsellor will provide you with Labour Market Research (LMR) forms to research and complete, and also ask you to obtain a Letter of Acceptance from the college and program of your choice.
For your next appointment with your SC counsellor, take the Letter of Acceptance, and completed LMR to discuss eligibility and suitability. Following your appointment, please email email@example.com and advise the outcome.
For those who do not qualify for Second Career funding for any reason, and would like to enrol in our program, we recommend considering a Student Line of Credit (repayable loan) from your banking institution.
In Summary-Travel College Canada is a “boutique” private career college designed with adult learners in mind committed to successfully training for a new career in the travel, tourism, and hospitality industry.
If you feel Travel College Canada is right for you, please let your Second Career counselor know Travel College Canada is your college of choice, and where you would like to study for your new career. We would love to have you as a student!

Monica’s Success Story….
I’m very happy to write a note about my recent training experience at Travel College Canada.
Recently I graduated with honours from the program of my choice – International Tourism Management which was amazing so, I’m sending a big thank you.
My program was funded and I was happy they agreed to send me to the college of my choice, Travel College Canada. I completed my full-time program in seven months which at my age is very much appreciated. As a single parent with family, mortgages and other responsibilities it was important I be trained and ready for employment in my second career as quickly as possible. I looked into community colleges however a similar program would have taken almost two years as there are many non travel subjects.
As an adult returning to school I wasn’t sure what to expect so I felt a little overwhelmed at the beginning. However, when I met my classmates who were also adult students, I immediately felt comfortable and knew I had made the right choice with a private career college designed for adult learners. The program and assignments were very comprehensive however I always managed to study and get my assignments done on time. When I had questions or needed a little extra help, my instructor and staff at the college were always available.
It was a huge bonus to learn Travel College Canada includes a TICO pre-exam course to help prepare us to write the TICO exam for mandatory certification to work in the travel industry, after this I knew I was truly employment ready. Monica
