Are You A Newcomer to Canada? LINC might be for you!

What are LINC Classes?

LINC classes will help you improve your English skills. 

You will also learn about Canadian laws, health care, Canadian society, the job market and many other things that are important for a successful life in Canada.

In upper LINC levels you will become more prepared to qualify for training or employment.  To work in Canada, you may need to take classes beyond LINC in order to work in your particular field.

Students who complete LINC 8 may wish to take high school credit classes or Business, Careers & Job Skills classes.
