Individuals destined for the labour market, regardless of level of expertise, need to be able to read, write and speak English.

Classes are available for Permanent Residents, Ministerial Permit Holders or individuals who have been recognized as a Convention Refugees. The Centre offers various part-Dates and Time and full-Dates and Time classes ranging from Literacy/Level 1 to Level 4. The Language Training program's curriculum focuses on building day-to-day English language skills with emphasis on orientation and information for newcomers about Canadian systems and services. Computers are available to assist and enhance English language acquisition.
