The only way you can be qualified to work as cabin crew in Canada is to complete the training program that is provided by the airline that employs you. Do not give anyone who would tell you otherwise any of your money, as it will be wasted.

If you want to work as cabin crew, apply to the airlines when they are hiring and go through the process.

The school can't change the fact that you're not legally entitled to work in Canada. Taking a course will not change that unless you're working in an industry or position that is in high demand with no Canadians available to fill positions. The airlines have no trouble recruiting from Canadian citizens and legal immigrants. So if you want to work as crew for a Canadian carrier, your first hurdle is being legally able to work in Canada.

You may be correct that the school indicates they can get you an interview, but as was stated if you don't have a work permit you won't get the job. It really is that simple.

Canadian immigration is a point based system and applying as a flight attendant is not a "required profession" so you would likely not score enough points to get a work visa. If you really wanted to get in, your best bet is to find and marry a Canadian.

Please! Does anyone know about IBT anything? Tell me, please. I hope it's not a fictitious college and extortion of money?

I'll take the liberty and read between the lines...you are looking for anything that will help you get into Canada and land a job, as a flight attendant in this case. As stated before, there are no short cuts, there are no easy ways, there are no magic bullets to help you do that. If you wish to go to IBT, then go for it but I suspect that what they will teach you is 90% common sense and 10% industry specific information. I spent a lot of time in Toronto, so I looked at google to refresh my memory. The address is a regular office building sandwiched between a sushi shop and a florist. Fourth floor of a small office building with hardly any parking spots. It probably is fully legitimate but then again you'll come full circle with the work permit and permanent residence status. If I were in your shoes, I'd try the US Visa lottery, might have a better chance and certainly will be less of a headache.
