Language Training for Syrian Refugees

The government of Canada plans the resettle 25,000 Syrian refugees in the coming year, in response to the on-going conflict in Syria. As thousands of Syrians continue to arrive in communities across Canada, NGO’s, government offices and businesses are preparing for their arrival and resettlement process.

Canadians have been greeting them with warm clothing, housing, food, personal and household items. Eventually, they will transition from newly arrivals to settled residents. They will require more than the basic necessities of life, such as jobs, cultural integration and language training. Actually, language training is most likely the first need they will require after food, shelter and clothing.

The only way for our new Syrian residents to have successful and fulfilling lives, here in Canada, is through proper language training. Not all, but the majority of them will need to learn or improve their English and those in Quebec will need to learn or improve French.

Surely, the government has FREE language training programs designed specifically for newcomers Canada. However, with the overwhelming number of newly arriving residents many government-sponsored language schools are full with hundreds on the waiting lists.

This is not a good situation for either the government or the new resident. Many of our new residents have professional degrees and have the desire to start working again, soon. In order to fast track their professional careers in Canada, they will need the ability to speak the language, communicate effectively and with confidence.

In addition to limited spaces,  language schools are not suitable for everyone. Many of our new residents have young families and will be spending a lot of time with their families and opting out of daycare (with one parent staying at home). A language school does not provide the right environment for individuals in this situation.
