English as a Second Language (ESL) Project
CLEO developed 26 activity kits with classroom materials for teachers and learners in Adult ESL and Language Instruction for Newcomers to Canada (LINC) classes. The materials are meant to enhance what newcomers know about their legal rights and responsibilities, and to provide information about where and how to access legal help in their community.

Held in September 2008, the conference brought together people who develop and deliver information to help their clients and communities understand their legal rights. The conference offered participants the opportunity to gain practical skills and knowledge from experts and share best practices.

Your Rights. Your Language.

The materials were produced in Chinese, Arabic, Tamil, Urdu, Spanish and Somali, as well as English and French. View resources
