The Language Instruction for Newcomers to Canada (LINC) allows colleges to offer full or part time training to thousands of people.

It has been reported in Expat Forum that the scheme, The Language Instruction for Newcomers to Canada (LINC), allows colleges to offer full or part time training to thousands of people. The latest funding stream of $16.2 million over 3 years will help to boost this with Canada’s Citizenship and Immigration Minister Chris Alexander explaining that “by giving immigrants the tools they need to succeed we are helping to build a stronger community and a stronger economy.”

This is supported by several previous studies, including a 2005 Statistics Canada study which revealed that the ability to speak English significantly improved employment rates of immigrants, particularly within highly skilled jobs.

Renowned for their worldwide removal services, Interdean has been assisting customers with their Canadian moves for more than 50 years. Regularly providing readers with advice on integrating within their new community, the specialists were keen to offer their thoughts on the benefits of this programme.

“It’s great to hear that additional funding is being allocated to such a worthwhile cause. Our advice for anyone moving to Canada, or in fact any country, would be to learn the basics of their new language as well as take advantage of training like this which can boost employment prospects as well as be useful for everyday tasks and making new friends.”
