English as an Additional Language

The UFCW Training Centre offers a variety of
English as an Additional Language (EAL) classes.

Without English, it is hard to communicate outside of the home, at work or to learn about Canadian culture and to become involved in the community.

Our programs are here to help those who want to learn or improve their English.

Like all of our programs, our classes are open to anyone, but priority is given to UFCW members.

This course is free for UFCW members and their families.

A fee will apply for others.
