IMPORTANT NEWS: Services at The Immigrant Education Society (TIES) will be moving ONLINE as of Tuesday, March 17, 2020. 

This is a temporary change as we cope with the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. All of our staff will be working from home to continue our operations.

The health and safety of our students, volunteers, and staff are our top priority. This is a way for us to continue serving our community, as best as we can, while keeping everyone safe and secure.

We will monitor and follow the recommendations of Alberta Health Services as the situation unfolds and will alert you when face-to-face education resumes at all of our facilities.

Please check this site often for the latest developments.
