When: November 5th, 2 PM EST
English and French are both Canada’s official languages. Being able to speak at least one of them makes settling in Canada a much easier process. Luckily, the Canadian government works with not-for-profits to provide newcomers with free English classes for people of all English levels.
One of these not-for-profits is The Immigrant Education Society (TIES) . We are thrilled to announce that the next Remitbee Expert is Jana Ciobanu, Language Instruction for Newcomers to Canada (LINC) Program Manager at TIES. Jana will be discussing the different programs available to immigrants in Canada.
