LINC Programs In Canada

The Government of Canada, in cooperation with local school boards, community colleges, immigrant and community organizations, offers French and English language training across Canada. The name of the program is LINC, which stands for Language Instruction for Newcomers to Canada.

The LINC assessment centres across Canada can assess your French and English language training needs and refer you to LINC ESL English classes from benchmark levels 1 to 5. You can contact LINC providers directly for more information and remember to ask about fees, since some of these courses may not be free.

We recommend the FREE LINC programs for all new Canadians that are French or English language beginners and qualify for the LINK program.

Individuals who have completed LINC level 5 will have an English language level generally classified as lower intermediate. LINC level 5 graduates may find that upper intermediate and advanced ESL English training is necessary to qualify for Canadian jobs requiring upper intermediate to advanced English Language fluency or Canadian college and university admission which requires the equivalent of LINC level 9.

This intermediate and advanced ESL English training is available from some LINC schools as an ELT Enhanced Language Training program or private ESL English tutors and ESL English language schools at a fee of $10 to $15 per English class or $25 per hour for professional ESL English tutoring.

LINC schools can advertise location, contact information and programs for a fee. Please use the business registration forms.
