People who apply for Canadian citizenship have to meet language requirements and, in most cases, pass a test that demonstrates knowledge of Canada. Some people may not be able to meet these requirements due to disability, post-traumatic stress disorder, or low literacy. This resource explains how ESL teachers can help these people, for example, by telling them about their rights and referring them for legal help.
Twenty-six activity kits with classroom materials for teachers and learners in Adult ESL and Language Instruction for Newcomers to Canada (LINC) classes, based on topics from CLEO's tenants' and workers' rights series.
Designed to teach newcomers about their legal rights and to be used along with the relevant CLEO publications, the materials are intended for learners and levels ranging from Canadian Language Benchmarks 1 to 6+.
