Citizenship and Immigration Canada has cut the Eastern Ontario LINC Professional Development Day in Ottawa for 2013.
This PD day:
is the only job specific professional development training provided to Eastern Ontario LINC instructors and childcare staff
is a long standing tradition dating back to the very beginning of the LINC program in Ottawa
is critical for LINC instructors to meet the yearly PD requirements of their CIC mandated TESL Ontario certification
provides essential local level training for the latest CIC initiatives such as PBLA, new Canadian Language Benchmarks, LearnIT2Teach, Post TESL certification and the ELECT program
engages the expertise and involvement of instructors and childcare staff at the local level to make CIC initiatives successful
showcases the local expertise of LINC instructors and childcare staff by providing timely, practical and professional presentations
Cutting this LINC PD fragments Eastern Ontario LINC programs and is short-sighted and counterproductive. We call on the Minister of Citizenship and Immigration to re-instate funding for this valuable professional day.
Keep up the great work. Look what you've accomplished!
