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

- 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.
