LINC Quality of Life & Positive Parenting Program

The Calgary Immigrant Educational Society is pleased to announce two important initiatives helping newcomers adapt to life in Canada.

LINC Quality of Life

What is LINC Quality of Life? It’s a new support program within our Language Instruction for Newcomers to Canada (LINC) program that provides students with help in recognizing learning and educational barriers. When joining our LINC program, a LINC Quality of Life coordinator is present for the first few classes to monitor for learning difficulties, and to provide students who someone to talk to one-on-one for counselling, should the need arise. You can hear more about this initiative in a video from John Wang, the LINC Quality of Life Supervisor.

Triple P: Positive Parenting Program

Together with CIES, the Calgary Chinese Community Service Association will be facilitating a positive parenting program for newcomers and their families starting this month. These workshops, offered in English, will provide a safe place for participants to make friends, share their thoughts, and engage in some important topics including:

  • Building Positive Relationships
  • Cultural Differences
  • Parenting Strategies
  • Child Development
  • Managing Behaviours
  • Planning ahead

Triple P is free of charge and is open for attendance every Friday from January 18th to March 8th, 2019 at our Forest Lawn location from 12:30pm to 2:30pm. Refreshments will be provided. If you’re interested in attending, contact the program coordinator John Wang by clicking the button below.
