r.e. English as a second language (ESL) classes in Canmore

We are community members whose first language is not English and we come from all over the world. ESL speakers include newcomers, new immigrants, residents and temporary workers, studying, employed and, in many cases, settling in Canmore.

To help us integrate and contribute in the best way possible to this community we need to improve our English language skills. Sadly, the current Community Learning Calendar includes no ESL classes at all in Canmore, although there are courses in Spanish and French.

We appreciate the valuable support we receive from the Bow Valley Literacy Program and Canmore Library. However, this alone is not enough to enable us to progress in our learning as fast as we need. We are therefore requesting the Town of Canmore to provide affordable community classes in English as a second language. This will benefit us all – the town, the community and the many ESL speakers who live and work in Canmore.
