The Immigrant Education Society (TIES) is a not-for-profit organization offering Language, Employment and Settlement services to newcomers and Canadians.

Our Literacy programming was launched 15 years ago in response to a growing need for basic language skills, to prepare beginners with the foundations needed to continue learning English.

In our experience, Literacy is key to students’ success. This website is designed to support Literacy teachers and the important work they do.
