 LINC - Language Instruction for Newcomers to Canada

Language Instruction to Newcomers includes Literacy through LINC levels 1 – 7. The classes help learners develop and improve their listening, speaking, reading and writing skills by using topics that help newcomers settle and integrate in Canada. All LINC classes include computer assisted language learning.
 
Our LINC classes are open to permanent residents and convention refugees who are 18 years or older. They are not open to Canadian Citizens and refugee claimants.
 
To register, please visit the location of your choice. The assistant will book an assessment for you with the YMCA Assessment Centre in order to determine your language level and find the best place for you.
