If you’re in Southwestern Ontario, the Kitchener-Waterloo Amateur Radio club has a beginners course starting in March and running through June. It’s mostly self-study but gives you opportunity to talk to club members and get help on various topics. Includes exam. I did it in 2018. Being part of a class helped me define a timeline to get it done and motivation to work through the material at a steady pace.

Should you be in southern Ontario or passing through, PM me. I'm an accredited examiner for industry Canada. I can also do exams for people out of province but only if they come to Ontario.

No charges, PM if interested.

I don’t know of any courses in your area, but if you go the self-study route the COAX Publications study guide along with their online exam prep tests are a great way to go.

The ISED exam generator is a good tool (Amateur radio exam generator - Amateur radio operator certificates), and there are a few iOS apps that quiz you on the exam bank questions.

ISED should have a link to examiners in your area, or one of your local clubs should be able to reconnect someone.

Best of luck!
