What is LINC Literacy?

Do you want to learn English? Are regular LINC classes too hard for you to understand? If you struggle to understand letters and numbers, or if you have little experience learning in a classroom setting, LINC Literacy is for you.

We offer FREE full-time and part-time LINC Literacy classes for landed immigrants and refugees, where you can learn basic English to help you understand life in Canada. Childcare services are available free of charge to LINC Literacy students, for children aged 12 months to 11 years.

We offer the following Canadian Language Benchmarks (CLB) in LINC Literacy:
