Language Instruction for Newcomers to Canada


About the Program

The LINC program helps permanent residents develop English language skills for life in Canada.

Learn about Canadian culture and take part in activities that help you live and work in Alberta as you build confidence reading, writing, listening, and speaking English.

The language, intercultural and essential workplace skills you develop in this program will help you find work, or continue your education in one of the college’s certificate or diploma programs.

The program uses the Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) framework, which is a nationally recognized scale of English language ability. The LINC program offers CLBs 5-8 and incorporates technological and Workplace Essential Skills.

Our college is welcoming and provides personal attention to meet your needs. We encourage you to email our LINC Coordinator for the campus you wish to attend to determine funding and CLB level eligibility and get help understanding the education system in Canada.
