Overview

Are you new to Canada? NorQuest College supports your settlement in Alberta and Canada by offering courses that will help you develop basic English language proficiency, settlement knowledge, and essential skills.

Attend a LINC registration session.

Our community service learning activities are designed to provide learning opportunities while making a meaningful contribution to the community and will prepare you for further education or career options.

Our classes range from basic literacy to CLB 8, and include full-time and part-time (evenings) in-person, hybrid, rural, and online delivery options. We also offer specialized courses such as American Sign Language, Youth LINC, employment preparation courses such as LINC Works, LINC Preparation for Childcare Work, LINC Volunteer, and a Digital Literacy course to help prepare our students to study online. Our flexible delivery options allow you to study at your own pace and at a time of your choice to achieve your educational goals.

When you apply to the LINC program, certain personal information is collected and shared with Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada.
