Organizations selected to deliver adapted language training

Backgrounder

In November 2018, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) launched an expression of interest process to solicit proposals from organizations able to deliver French and English language training to newcomers who declare French as their language of preference and want to make a Francophone minority community their new home. Newcomers will receive training that improves their skills in one language while taking more intensive training in the other, depending on their needs. Language training services help newcomers acquire the skills they need to successfully settle and participate in all aspects of Canadian society and the economy.

Seven organizations from across Canada have been selected as part of this process and will receive up to $7.6 million over the next 4 years. Below is a list of the organizations and projects:
