Special Admission Entrance Requirements

The Special Admission entrance requirements apply to applicants who have not completed a Canadian Grade 12 High School Diploma or GED program, or applicants who have completed their education in a foreign school. We will consider the eligibility of applicants for the CHN Health Care Aide Diploma Program who meet one of the following criteria:

  1. Be at Least 18 Years of Age
  2. Applicants who have completed their education in a foreign school must provide proof that their qualifications are at least equivalent to a Grade 12 Diploma offered by Canadian high schools. This can be provided through The Academic Credentials Assessment Service in Manitoba or through other recognized organizations. The Academic Credentials Assessment Service provides a free evaluation of international education to determine its equivalency in Manitoba standards.
  3. A prospective Canadian student that does not have a Grade 12 standing may take an academic skills assessment test and provide proof that their academic performance is at or better than a Grade 12 level.
  4. Applicants whose first language is not English, and who in the judgment of the Program Administrator may have difficulty in completing the program, will be required to provide proof of their English language skills. The Winnipeg English Language Assessment and Referral Centre can provide a language assessment for these applicants. Applicants whose English language skills do not meet the job requirements can attend English as an Additional Language (EAL) training program prior to admission.
  5. Applicants who have a combination of previous knowledge and experience relevant to the Health Care Aide or a Canadian Home Care Worker with health care experience.
