Google Translate Limitations Disclaimer

The electronic translation service on the Toronto District School Board website is hosted by Google Translate, a third party service. The TDSB does not guarantee or warrant the reliability, accuracy or completeness of any translated information.

The quality of the translation will vary in some of the languages offered by Google. Google Translate is a free service and currently offers translation in over 100 languages, but does not capture all languages or dialects.

The basic translation goal is to capture the general intention of the original English material. Before you act on translated information, we encourage you to confirm any facts that are important to you or may affect any decisions you make.

The Toronto District School Board is committed to equity and community engagement, and by providing this tool, we are making our information more accessible to families whose first language is not English.

Language Instruction for Newcomers to Canada

Language Instruction for Newcomers to Canada (LINC) helps newcomers learn English and assists them in the settlement process and integration into Canadian society. 

Part-time and full-time classes are available year-round, and some sites also offer evening and weekend classes. All locations provide Care for Newcomer Children (CNC) - for ages 19 months to 6 years - while parents are attending classes.

The LINC program is open to all newcomers who meet the following criteria:

  • landed immigrant (not a Canadian citizen or visitor) 
  • or convention refugee (not a refugee claimant) 
  • 18 years of age or older

IELTS Preparation at Danforth

IELTS Preparation at Kennedy

Eligible individuals meet with a program counsellor for an assessment before they can start attending classes. They are assessed for their English-speaking skills and then placed into a class according to their level and class availability. The LINC program offers several levels, from beginner to high-intermediate. 

 
All of our locations are accessible by transit, and in some cases, participants may qualify for public transportation assistance. 

Want to improve your English skills? Get started today! Call or visit one of the TDSB LINC locations near you or contact the YMCA Assessment Centre at 416-925-LINC (5462) - more info at www.ymcagta.org/.
