Our purpose is to strengthen the role of local communities across the province in integrating and serving the newcomer population.

The Local Immigration Partnership Council (LIPC)
Sub-Committee for Renfrew County

The Local Immigration Partnership Council’s (LIPC) primary purpose is to act as a community advisory body lending direction to the execution of the Rural Mosaic: Building on Strengths and Seizing Opportunities Strategic Plan for Renfrew and Lanark Counties that will serve to employ collaboration, research, and positive strength-based leadership, complemented by a focus on competitive economic sustainability, in order to foster a welcoming and healthy community.

Members of the LIPC will provide leadership, wisdom, and industry-specific knowledge of challenges and opportunities that directly relate to settlement issues. The group will help identify gaps in services for newcomers, help determine best practices for attracting new Canadians to our area, and engage in worthwhile discussions and activities concerning the enhancement of diversity in Renfrew and Lanark Counties as a means to economic stability and growth.

Each one contains a list of potential language skills that learners can strengthen by using these methods.


    Music

    Click here for the 17 popular songs from 2017 and notes of how to learn English through music.

    • Reading
    • Listening
    • Vocabulary
    • Pronunciation
    • Idioms/Phrasal Verbs


    Journaling

    Writing a journal everyday about any topic is helpful to improve writing skills and vocabulary, but can have many other benefits as well. The best thing about journals is that learners at all levels can keep a journal to improve and track their English language learning, both independently or with an instructor. FluentU gives some tips to make journal writing an important tool in language learning. There are many websites that provide examples of journal prompts including including questions and incomplete statements. 

    • Writing
    • Vocabulary
    • Grammar
    • Idioms/Phrasal Verbs


    T.V.

    Read about tips on how to learn English through watching videos or visit Voice of America (VOA) for videos specific to language learners at various levels.

    • Listening
    • Vocabulary
    • Pronunciation (Real)
    • Idioms/Phrasal Verbs


    Blogs

    Here is a list of blogs that may be helpful as an English language learner or teacher: 

    • Reading
    • Vocabulary
    • Idioms/Phrasal Verbs


    The Goldlist Method

    The Goldlist Method is a way to organise vocabulary and schedules review to ensure long term memory. 

    • Reading
    • Vocabulary
    • Pronunciation
    • Idioms/Phrasal Verbs


    Apps & Online Games

    Convenience is the key to consistency. Allowing learners to “play” on their phones, while learning English independently at the same time? Yes, it’s possible and quite addictive! Duolingo and Memrise can both be used through Facebook or other popular platforms and track progress of the individual as well as sharing progress, or creating a friendly competition against others.

    • Reading
    • Writing
    • Listening
    • Vocabulary
    • Grammar
    • Pronunciation
    • Idioms/Phrasal Verbs


    Language Exchange

    Sign up for free with Verbling or italki to connect with people around the world to share the learner's first language with others while the other person provides his/her English expertise. These exchanges are free; however, there are also private one-on-one instructors available through the following websites that charge a fee. Talking to local volunteers, coworkers, family members, and friends in English is the best option, but if you are not able to then check out the  Language Exchange websites.

    • Listening
    • Speaking
    • Vocabulary
    • Grammar
    • Pronunciation
    • Idioms/Phrasal Verbs


    YouTube

    Any English video clip works if the learner is interested and listening attentively, but TeachThought provides a list of the best YouTube Channels to learn English independently. Thompson Language Centre by Judy Thompson, author of English is Stupid, Students are Not, presents many videos on her YouTube Channel that includes correcting various sounds in English and talking about the patterns in our speech. Explore for the many more that are available!

    • Listening
    • Vocabulary
    • Pronunciation
    • Idioms/Phrasal Verbs


    Podcasts

    Podcasts are available in any topic of the learner’s interest and often at various levels. It allows learners to practice their listening independently, without judgement, and at their own pace.

    The CBC includes short audio clips for adults regarding actual content in the news.

    Olly Richards provides a podcast about learning languages, which is helpful for more advanced English language learners, or for volunteers invested in assisting learners. 

    • Listening
    • Vocabulary
    • Pronunciation
    • Idioms/Phrasal Verbs


    Workbooks

    There are many workbooks out there, but they can be difficult to track down. Side by Side has been a favourite. Message the Community Language Support Coordinator for options available to borrow. Also, some libraries may have various workbooks available through their InterLibrary Loan system (Author Sandra Heyer has multiple workbooks including True Stories in the News that are available to borrow through the InterLibrary loan system, just ask your local librarian!)

    • Reading
    • Writing
    • Vocabulary
    • Grammar


    Flashcards/Spaced-Repetition

    Anki is an easy way to systematically review words using spaced repetition. Ask the Community Language Support Coordinator to possibly borrow a deck of flashcards.

    • Reading
    • Vocabulary
    • Idioms/Phrasal Verbs


    Posters/Labelling

    Visual learners will love having a reference for vocabulary, pronunciation, categorization, grammar, and more! Just like most English language learning strategies, this one is for all levels as well, including literacy. Some like to cover their furniture and household items with English labels. If the pronunciation of vowel sounds is difficult, the learner can post this vowel chart using colours to show the various sounds on the wall beside their bed to review every night and morning. The learner can tape a poster of phrasal verbs about clothing where he or she gets dressed every morning .

    • Reading
    • Vocabulary
    • Idioms/Phrasal Verbs


    Presentations

    Similar to Journaling and the prompts associated with creative ideas to use as topics, presentations can have a great impact on vocabulary at any level in various subjects, and also battles the very common nervousness associated with learning another language, but in a non-threatening environment. At first start with something familiar, then ask to research and present findings on a specific inquiry, or present an opinion on light or heavy topics, depending on the comfort level of the learner. For those outside the classroom, take everyday situations to practice. Present puppet shows to your young children at home; go for coffee with a friend; find a language partner and take turns presenting and giving feedback. Here are some reminders to be able to give great presentations.

    • Reading
    • Writing
    • Speaking
    • Listening
    • Vocabulary
    • Grammar
    • Pronunciation
    • Idioms/Phrasal Verbs

Through consultation with these groups, it was clear that volunteers were expending a great deal of time, money, and effort in order to gather teaching materials. There were two prominent challenges identified in surveys conducted at the beginning of the Community Language Support pilot project launched in 2017. The first challenge was finding readers that are both level- and age-appropriate for adult learners.  The second was accessing free ESL resource material and strategies particularly for literacy learners.

    Please enjoy the following resources. Any questions or comments, please contact Lana Johnston, the Community Language Support Coordinator of Lanark and Renfrew County (renfrewlanark.eslcoordinator@gmail.com).

    Assessments: Contact the Language Support Coordinator of Lanark & Renfrew Counties for formal and informal assessment options.

    The Ottawa Valley began forming 600 million years ago, and today the land forms a "trench" or "valley" in both the Province of Ontario and the Province of Quebec.  The beautiful and mighty Ottawa River runs through the centre of this land. The land within the watershed of the Ottawa River is known as the "Ottawa Valley".

    Renfrew County is located in the heart of the Ottawa Valley, the Province of Ontario in the Dominion of Canada, geographically located in Eastern Ontario.  The County of Renfrew in the Ottawa Valley stretches from the outskirts of Canada's Capital, the City of Ottawa, in the east and along the shores of historic Ottawa River in the Province of Ontario, to the northern tip of Algonquin Park's wilderness in the west.

    The County encompasses 17 municipalities, approximately 100,000 residents and has an area of 7,645.68 sq. kms.  The area is rural in nature and is made up of a variety of towns and industries.  Renfrew County is home to a major Canadian scientific research facility, a large military base, a variety of historical sites, over 900 lakes, and 4 river systems.  The Scenery of the area makes this part of Canada unique. The people who live in Renfrew County love their communities and are passionate about sharing the benefits of living in this beautiful region of Ontario.

    ESL for Adults

    In Renfew County, ESL is provided by the Renfrew County District School Board. The program is funded by The Ontario Ministry of Citizenship, Immigration and International Trade and operates under the Ministry's guidelines for eligibility. When ten interested, eligible, and committed students become registered and have completed the language assessment, coordinated by the School Board, an ESL class can be created in the particular community in Renfrew County where the interested parties reside.


    In hopes to raise the awareness about this program and to produce the ten eligible students in order to start a new class, the LIP has agreed to promote potential ESL offerings in the communities where the need has arisen.  Posters and newspaper ads have been developed in multiple languages in order to steer interested parties to the LIP general email account.  Once they have responded, LIP staff will screen for basic eligibility and collect the information of the interested party. When the list grows to ten individuals from the community, LIP will liaise with RCDSB in order to create the new class, should all parameters be met by all parties involved. 

    If you would like help in creating a new ESL class in your community, please contact us

    Classes currently available in Smiths Falls only.

    In Lanark County, ESL is provided by TR Leger School of Adult, Alternative and Continuing Education. The program is funded by The Ontario Ministry of Citizenship, Immigration and International Trade and operates under the Ministry's guidelines for eligibility. When ten interested, eligible, and committed students become registered and have completed the language assessment, coordinated by TR Leger School, an ESL class can be created in the particular community in Lanark County where the interested parties reside. 
     
    In hopes to raise the awareness about this program and to produce the ten eligible students in order to start a new class, the LIP has agreed to promote potential ESL offerings in the communities where the need has arisen.  Posters and newspaper ads have been developed in multiple languages in order to steer interested parties to the LIP general email account.  Once they have responded, LIP staff will screen for basic eligibility and collect the information of the interested party. When the list grows to ten individuals from the community, LIP will liaise with TR Leger School in order to create the new class, should all parameters be met by all parties involved. 
     

    If you would like help in creating a new ESL class in  your community, please contact us.

Coves and beaches speckle the landscape.

    After building the world-renowned Rideau Canal, Scottish stonemasons stayed to create some of the oldest and prettiest towns in Canada. Evidence of their craft is seen in over 140 designated heritage properties throughout the County, often by water’s edge. Bring your camera and capture our historically significant “Seven Wonders of Lanark County!”

    Generations of residents and visitors have built a strong community spirit that has cultivated small business, events and festivals that speak to our ancestral and geological heritage.

    Geographically, Lanark County is a remarkably distinct region within the Frontenac Axis where the Canadian Shield meets the Limestone Plains. This presents a combination of ecological features that offer an especially diverse growth area for native plant species, which attract a variety of birds and wildlife. Residents and visitors enjoy cycling and paddling through these breathtaking natural vistas.

    As the Maple Syrup capital of Ontario, our concentration of sugar maple trees creates a dramatic display of fall colours. Visitors from all over the world enjoy this authentic Canadian experience.

    Only minutes from the Nation’s Capital, people of the region have access to all the world-class amenities of a major centre. At the same time, they enjoy the relaxed lakeside lifestyle.

    Lanark County is a world heritage destination!
