Language Training for Canada, a recent video created by Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC), raises newcomer awareness on the importance of official language skills for settlement in Canada.
The intended audience for the video includes those who are still overseas, as well as those who have already arrived in Canada. The information in the video is aligned with the content in the CIC settlement guide Welcome to Canada.
To help newcomers manage expectations around their language ability before they arrive, the video highlights the Canadian Language Benchmarks Online Self-Assessment tool (CLB-OSA). The video also promotes language training options available to newcomers upon arrival, and encourages them to get started on improving their skills as soon as possible.
