L.I.N.C- Language Instruction for Newcomers

Funded through Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada, our unique female only Language Instruction for Newcomers Program, is open to refugee and immigrants from all over the world.

Our program focuses on improving listening, speaking, reading and writing through exploration of settlement-related topics. This program implements Portfolio-Based Language Assessment, which is aligned with the Canadian Language Benchmarks. Another component to this program is Care for Newcomer Children.

This allows participants to bring their children to the program where they can engage with other newcomer children.
