Meet Chef Emilie Metwalli
Emilie graduated from the Culinary Management program at Humber College in 2003, and spent several years working for Accor Hotels, Hilton Hotels and several restaurants in Toronto, before finally settling at the Westin Harbour Castle Hotel. The Westin, a former Starwood Hotels property, is where she began to hone her skills as a Chef and understand more about hotel management. Working as an Apprentice, then as a Commis 1 and finally a Chef de Partie, Emilie then moved over into the Culinary management team to gain the necessary skills to further her career. This move also helped her to prepare for her role at Canadore College, where she currently teaches and is proudly sharing her passion for Culinary Arts with future Chefs. When she is not in the classroom, she enjoys baking with her two girls, who have grown to love spending time in the kitchen just as much as she does.
Elements of Risk
The risk of injury may exist in experiential learning activities. Due to the very nature of some activities, the risk of injury may increase. Injuries may range from minor sprains to concerns that are more serious. The safety and well-being of students is the prime concern and the participating boards shall make their best effort to manage this as effectively as possible. The management of injury risks is the responsibility of the caring adult supervising the student in the at-home environment.
Age of Majority
If a student has attained the age of majority, the signature of the parent or guardian is left to the discretion of the activity leaders. Parents are invited to telephone the school if they require additional information.
