FUNDRAISING DRIVE: A New Client Computer Lab

Donations may also be made online through Canada Helps.



VIDEO: New Word, New World

LINC instructor Natalie Anderson asked her Level 7 evening class at the North Shore English Language Centre to use their artistic talents to express the connection between language and the ability to function effectively in a new culture. The result was a poetic expression of how New Words can open up New Worlds, and the feelings of empowerment and inclusion that accompany this learning process.
