LINC is offered from CLB literacy level to CLB level 8 for all adult newcomers, refugees, settled immigrants. This program is suited for all levels of literacy, age groups, genders and backgrounds. It can help you meet individual language goals so you can communicate and engage in everyday life in your community, at work or school as quickly as possible.

Our instructors are all TESL certified with years of experience teaching English in Canada and abroad. Class sizes are small and give you the opportunity to learn English at your own pace, with no tests, no stress and no judgment.

LINC classes will help you:

  • Prepare for employment, school and community engagement.
  • Make friends, networks, socialize and access support and resources.
  • Participate in field studies, workshops and community events.
  • Earn your LINC certificate (certificates with Listening and Speaking at a minimum Level 4 are accepted as proof of language requirement for citizenship).

We have developed hybrid classes in addition to in-person classes for all levels daytime and night time.
