Specialized Language Training in Ontario

The Specialized Language Training Pilot Projects offer immigrants the opportunity to strengthen their language skills so they can get jobs that reflect their qualifications or function more effectively in jobs they currently have. Sixteen school boards across Ontario are offering this job-specific language training in one of two ways:

  • Language Training for the Workplace (LTFW) assists immigrants in finding work in a specific field, by offering sector-specific English as a Second Language (ESL) / French as a Second Language (FSL) training; and
  • Language Training in the Workplace (LTIW) helps immigrants who are already employed to improve their ESL/FSL language skills at work.

Key occupational sectors for this program include:
