English Language Classes

If you are interested in learning or improving your English to prepare for citizenship, education or employment, you can take part in our language classes. To participate in these classes, you must complete a Canadian Language Benchmark Assessment.

Our certified instructors use everyday tasks and real-world examples in our LINC language training program, to teach reading, writing, listening and speaking skills within the framework of the Canadian Language Benchmarks. Levels range from Literacy to CLB 6.

Please speak to a Settlement Worker to get started.
