Over the summer months, CCLB continued to work with both the Ontario Ministry of Citizenship, Immigration and International Trade (MCIIT) and Employment Ontario sites to set up WLA Pre-Screener training in the province. As a result, 24 sessions have been held. 

The WLA Pre-Screener is a 30-minute assessment tool designed to help employment counselors estimate the general language abilities, referenced to the Canadian Language Benchmarks, of clients whose first language is not English. It is intended to be used along with other resources to help counselors make decisions about appropriate next steps when English language abilities are a consideration. Pathways may include:

  • Full language assessment
  • Bridge-to-work programs
  • Post-secondary education
  • Support to pass accreditation test
  • Employment
