On October 15, 2014, self-identified Métis Elijah Cadarette graduated from the 2-year Culinary Management program at St. Clair College. In this program, students learn basic cooking fundamentals, baking skills and gain a practical knowledge of food safety and sanitation. Students also gain practical experience in a wide range of advanced cooking skills and techniques as well as basic knowledge of viticulture and the art of matching wine and food.
Elijah is grateful to have received financial support from the Métis Nation of Ontario while attending the college as well as ongoing support as he works toward his Red Seal. Tradespersons are able to obtain a Red Seal endorsement on their provincial certificates by successfully completing an interprovincial Red Seal examination. The Red Seal Program acknowledges their competence and ensures recognition of their certification throughout Canada without further examination.
Congratulations Elijah and best wishes with your future endeavours!
