ESL LINC Registration

The ESL LINC Registration process for classes is slightly different depending on whether you are a new student, returning student or a transfer student.

  • New Students – if you have never been in a LINC class before
  • Returning Students – if you were in a LINC class before but you have been away
  • Transfer Students – if you are in a LINC class at another LINC school but you want to come to CCLCS

New Students

All new students must go through the YMCA for testing and registering (this is a three-step process). This information is from the YMCA website.

Step 1 – Make the appointment

Call 416.925.5462 Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. to make an appointment. Appointments are available during the day, in the evenings and on Saturdays. Choose a YMCA location where you can register and take the language assessment test. There are four:

Be sure to tell them which assessment centre you want. It is very important to come on time.

Step 2 – Test and register

At the YMCA, you will:

  • Register (bring your Permanent Resident Card and another piece of identification)
  • Take a language assessment test

The person that gives you the test (the Assessor) can give you advice if you need part-time classes or if you prefer another location or if you need child care.

Step 3 – We receive your information

If there is space in a CCLCS classroom, the person at the YMCA will put your name on the class list and you can start right away (they send us the information). If the class is full, your name will go on the waiting list. When there is space, we will contact you.

Returning Students

Contact the YMCA LINC-Assessment Centre where you took your language test. If you have not been in LINC for more than 12 months, you will have to do the test again (like a new student). If the class is full, your name will go on the waiting list. When there is space, we will contact you.

LINC Transfer Students

Contact the YMCA LINC-Assessment Centre where you took your language test. If the class is full, your name will go on the waiting list. When there is space, we will contact you .
