Conestoga cares about getting you a job. I studied computer programming and had chances to attend job fairs every month where I got to meet employers in KW (Kitchener-Waterloo) including big name startups. The instructors are all working professionals and will help you understand not just the theory but what it's like to be a programmer. I liked my two years here and would recommend it to anyone who doesn't want to do a four-year compsci degree.

I was passionate about programming and had 4 years of experience in India. I moved to Canada and took 5 years off of work to raise my son. Conestoga accepted my work experience and I had to give IELTS scores. Conestoga accepts a minimum of 6.5 bands in IETLS. The learning was in-depth and lots of companies were part of the program. Conestoga was focused on job skills from the start. This was perfect for me considering I wanted to get back into programming in a new country.
