Language Training

There are two official languages in Canada: English and French. By studying and improving your language ability it will be beneficial in helping you successfully settle in Prince Edward Island.

There are French speaking communities in Prince Edward Island; however, the majority of residents in the province speak English. Depending on the program that you are immigrating to Canada through, there may be minimum language requirements which you will need to meet.

PEI Association for Newcomers to Canada can provide information on English language training and assess your language skills. For more information review ANC’s English Language Training Guide.

The ANC also has a Community Connections Program in partnership with the Confederation Centre Public Library where volunteer tutors from the local community are matched with newcomers who wish to learn English with the help of a tutor.

La Coopérative d'intégration francophone de l'Î.-P.-É.(CIF) can provide information on French language training and assess your language skills.
