French for Immigrants

Thanks to financial support from the department of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC), the Continuing Education Division offers French language courses to permanent resident adults and children (ages 7 to 12).

French-Language Training for Adult Permanent Residents

Permanent residents can register without charge for French courses if they meet the eligibility criteria presented below. Please note that bursaries are limited and are awarded on a first come, first served basis.

Each course consists of 32.5, 33 or 150 hours of instruction. Learner attendance and achievement reports are sent to Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada.
