LINC is offered by Metro in five levels, from CLB 1 to CLB 5. You will receive language training, orientation to the community, Canadian cultural experiences, and assistance in helping you develop the skills you need to live in a Canadian community. Before registering in a LINC class you need to have your language assessed by LARCC (Language Assessment, Referral & Counselling Centre) and they will give you a LINC card.
