English language training for newcomers

Permanent residents of Canada currently residing in PEI are entitled to attend, free of charge, an adult education program designed to provide basic English language training to newcomers. The goal is to help new immigrants develop communication skills through reading, speaking, listening, and writing.

How to enroll?

Before enrolling in the program, all candidates must undergo the Canadian Language Benchmarks Placement Test (CLBPT).

Based on the level of English determined by the CLBPT, IRSA settlement workers will refer clients to Holland College where they will be placed in appropriate classes.
