Learning English Starts Here

As Care for Newcomers, we understand it is especially hard for women with limited English and Education, to become familiar in a new community and comfortable to connect with others. Our Foundations for Women Program is designed uniquely for newcomer women with lower-level English (ESL) skills. 

Weekly classes are held every Saturday morning, focusing on day-to-day topics like banking, shopping, appointments, childcare, and community programs. 

Our language Instructor creates a safe and fun learning space, so participants feel at ease and eager to improve their English language skills. The Foundations For Women program is also a great way to meet other Newcomers, share experiences, and make friends.

ENGLISH for Life in Canada

Learning and getting better at English helps you be successful here in Canada. Adult and youth Newcomers can take English as a Second Language (ESL) classes and join Learn & Meet groups with the help of Care Workers at our office and in schools.


When you learn English, it gets easier to find work, meet new people, and go shopping. You are an important part of our community, and English helps to make you feel more at home here. 


ESL classes teach Newcomers English in a class to speak, read, and write English starting from what they know and getting better with each level. Classes are part-time and can be in the day, at night, on the weekend, or during school hours.
