Language Instruction for Newcomers to Canada (LINC)

The Language Instruction for Newcomers to Canada (LINC) program offers English language classes free-of-charge to new immigrants. Classes range from Pre-literacy to LINC 6, which is an intermediate language ability level. As part of English language training, clients learn skills for adapting to Canadian society. They also gain an awareness of community and the resources to deal with settlement issues, as well as knowledge of life in Canada including laws, rights and responsibilities.
Currently, DIVERSEcity offers LINC classes at two campuses located in Newton.

Free daytime childminding is available for the children of LINC students.
