your transition into Canada

English Classes

JIAS offers English classes to newcomers through the Language Instruction for Newcomers to Canada (LINC) Program. LINC is funded by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC). We have four LINC locations, two in Toronto and two in York Region.

We offer classes to meet everyone’s individual needs: full-time, part-time, and evenings. Daytime classes are open in person, while evening classes remain virtual.

Before registering for a class, clients must first be assessed through a recognized Language Assessment Centre. For the Toronto Assessment Centre, click here. For the York Region Assessment Centre, click here.

On-site at our main LINC schools, JIAS provides the CNC (Care for Newcomer Children) program for adult learners with young children between 18 months and 5 years old. While parents study English, their children are being well cared for while also gaining skills that will allow them to transition into the Canadian school system.
