There are many different kinds of ESL programs. Before you sign up for a language program, make sure it is the right one for you. Find out what type of program it is and if you have to pay a fee. Some of the programs have eligibility requirements related to residency in Canada and immigration status. Here are some examples:

English as a Second Language (ESL): language training that uses topics that help newcomers settle and integrate in Canada

Enhanced Language Training (ELT): Programs that provide job-specific, advanced level English training to adults. ELT is particularly useful for internationally-trained professionals.

Language Instruction for Newcomers to Canada (LINC): A program offered at no cost to eligible adult learners by the Government of Canada.

English literacy development (ELD) programs: Classes for people who speak a language other than English and do not read or write very well in any language. Literacy classes help to improve reading, writing and basic math skills in English.
