Welcome Centres in Durham Region and York Region offer English classes to Newcomers to Canada. 

English Language Classes in the Welcome Centres help Newcomers to Canada learn the English language. English classes allow Newcomers to make friends, find a job and get used to living in a new country with people from different backgrounds.

The English classes program is available to adult Newcomers at various levels of English, from beginner to advanced. Students learn English quickly and have ample opportunity to speak and participate in activities with other students, instructors, and Welcome Centre staff. This helps improve Newcomers to Canada’s English and communication skills.

An English Language Assessment is a requirement for a client wanting to register for English classes. Clients are assessed according to Canadian Language Benchmarks and tested in four skill areas: Listening, Speaking, Reading and Writing.
