How do you upgrade from Medical Laboratory Technician to Medical laboratory Technologist in Canada?

I live in Toronto and am currently studying Human Health Science. I have completed my second year and am currently taking summer school. I am still deciding whether to pursue a career as a Medical Lab Technologist or explore other options. The Michener Institute is the only college in Toronto that offers the MLT program, and I am aware that it is challenging to gain admission there. I am hesitant to leave Toronto because I do not have family in Canada, and my friends are here. Studying in Windsor or Kingston, where I would feel lonely, does not seem worth it to me. My question is, if Michener does not accept me into the program, and I choose to study as a Medical Lab Technician first, is there a pathway to become a Medical Lab Technologist without having to study for three years again?

What is an average day like for Med Techs?

I'm looking into different career paths and I wanted to know what the average day looks like for a medical technician/technologist. What kind of specimen/reagents do you work with? How can I get started down this path?
