The LINC Program

Kingston Literacy & Skills LINC classes run from September through June. We offer small classes from Basic (CLB literacy) to Pre-Intermediate (CLB 4) levels. The instructors are all highly qualified, experienced and TESL Ontario certified.

In addition to classroom learning, our LINC program offers the following free of charge:

  • Childminding in our ”Care for Newcomer Children’s Program”.
  • Bus tickets in limited amounts to eligible students.
  • Field trips to points of interest such as museums, parks and conservation areas or special events in our community.

LINC has been specifically designed for and is provided free to landed immigrants and convention refugees. Adults 18 years of age and older are welcome. Classes serve a mix of people coming from a wide variety of backgrounds and occupations ranging from professions such as engineers and doctors to office workers and homemakers.
