Who is eligible to take government-funded language classes?
You can take government-funded classes to improve your language skills in English or French if you are an adult:
- permanent resident, or
- protected person.
Children and youth will learn English and French at school.
If you are not eligible, there are other options. Check with your province or territory. They might offer language classes to temporary workers, students or new citizens.
You can get more information on all language training programs available to you from an organization that helps newcomers in your area.
There are also many schools that offer private language training. You will probably have to pay for these courses.
