Every year students from across the country within college programs involving training in emergency service and military are eligible to enter an essay contest by writing a research paper on acute, cumulative, and post-traumatic stress disorder and the effects that these stressors have on their personal and professional lives. Steven, a recent graduate of the Primary Care Paramedic program at CTS Canadian Career College Barrie campus, was awarded one of two Ontario provincial awards and was also the recipient of the National Scholarship, which is awarded to one of the provincial winners from across the country.
Telethon ChequeHelping those in need. CTS Canadian Career College Sudbury Campus’ faculty and students raised and donated over $1700 in support of the CTV / Lions Children’s Christmas Telethon.
Holiday Hamper Project Every year starting in November, the Addictions Intervention Counselling and the Community Services Worker programs in Barrie combine their efforts into a community fundraiser project to provide toys for underprivileged children affected by mental health and addiction. The Samaritan House provides the coordinator, Stefani Hayes, with a list of names and a wish list from seven different children each year. From that list, the students brainstorm fundraising initiatives to provide at least three gifts for each child. In prior years, we have made an effort to provide a toy, clothing and non perishable food items.To date, the Holiday Hamper project has raised over $9, 000, and an overwhelming amount of toys thanks to the community effort and donations from the local fire departments and generous students.
Hospital's greatest medical equipment needsCTS Canadian Career College faculty and students were out in full force in this year’s Hospital Walk/Run.
Despite the poor weather conditions, the event was well attended and CTS Canadian Career College came just short of winning its second straight spirit award. All in all, the event was a huge success and the College was able to generate nearly $2000.00. Collectively, the event helped to raise over $100,000.00 to support the hospital’s greatest medical equipment needs.
Tim Hortons Camp DayJason Portugues was present to volunteer on behalf of CTS Canadian Career College at Tim Hortons (Seymour Location) during the infamous, “Camp Day”.
It is on this day that the monies received from every coffee purchased are donated to send children to camp!
Jason would like to personally thank the local staff for allowing him to participate although as he puts it, “I crumbled under the pressure”.
CTS Canadian Career College is urging those to attend these events, donate, and promote these and similar fundraisers so that those in need may benefit!

Barrie Relay For Life 2013Team Captain Doug Norman and the rest of the CTS Canadian Career College Barrie Campus would like to thank everyone for your participation in the 2013 Relay for Life.
As a team we raised $720.00 for the cause, a very respectable amount for our first year.
Doug also had this message:
"To those that could not make it thank you for your thoughts and moral support, with out this the team would not have accomplished the success we have had this year.
We as a team and school recognized the passing of Al Sutherland, with a Luminary, which burned brightly throughout the night in memory of his participation at CTS Canadian Career College"
We hope to grow the event next year and for many years to come!
