Canadian Citizenship course with ASL interpreter provided at VCC

The Citizenship Course that is due to start on September 28th to November 30th. I have attached a poster with details.

ASL interpreter will be available! 

A couple of things to note about the course: 

-Participants are only able to take the course once so we ask that anyone interested ensures they are able to commit to the full 10 weeks of the program.

-Priority is given to those who have applied or are applying soon for Citizenship

-The class uses the Discover Canada Guidebook (which we provide) as a basis for the course content but we make it more interactive, easier to understand and enjoyable!

-Due to our government funding, the class is for permanent residents only and each participant is required to complete a form and show their PR card once. 

If you have any questions or need assistance please let us know. if you are interested, please register and email contact Adrienne and tell her that Ladan Sahraei referred  you :
