Join us to develop your language skills and engage with other immigrant and refugee women, build connections, and find support during these challenging times!
This is a multi-level English program (from beginner to early intermediate:
CLB 1-3) allows participants to practice and improve their English language skills, make friends, gain self-confidence, and learn more about Canada. Our trauma-informed approach and curriculum emphasize well-being, connectedness, and personal growth while equipping participants with the language they need to function in Canadian society.
The Moving Forward program caters to immigrant and refugee women who speak English at a lower intermediate level (CLB 4 – 6) and are ready to start exploring their options: continuing education, networking, and volunteering opportunities. The program encourages social interaction in an intercultural environment while practicing and improving English speaking and conversation skills. Participants acquire language skills towards developing goal-oriented action plans, community interactions, and networking abilities to fulfill their potential. Both programs provide a participant-centered, strength-based and low barrier environment for immigrant and refugee women to learn English and gain the support and resources to thrive in Canadian society.

Shared program goals:
- To provide an environment that is safe, welcoming, and accessible (regardless of immigration status) that addresses women’s needs, convenient location(s), and childcare to facilitate learning.
- To support the development of basic and intermediate English for use in community interactions.
- To build awareness of and connection to available community resources so immigrant and refugee women can access and successfully navigate the services they need to address settlement issues.
- To foster connections and nurture relationships amongst participants in order to build a sense of community, cross-cultural awareness, and resilience and reduce their isolation.
