Canadian Newcomers Transition eased by the New Citizenship Curriculum

The McGuinty government is launching "All About Ontario," a new citizenship curriculum designed to ease newcomers' transition by teaching them more about life in this province, Ontario Minister of Citizenship and Immigration Mike Colle announced. All About Ontario' is claimed to be a part of the McGuinty government's comprehensive plan to break down barriers for newcomers. The province invested almost $100,000 to develop this curriculum resource.

"Understanding Ontario's traditions and the responsibilities of citizenship are important elements for newcomers making a successful transition to life in this province," Colle said. "That's why we're launching this new teaching tool for adult newcomers to learn about the province's history, geography, government and elements of responsible citizenship such as voting and volunteering."

"All About Ontario: A Curriculum Resource for Citizenship and Language Training" will be incorporated into English as a second language (ESL) and French as a second language (FSL) classes across the province. ESL and FSL classes are held at most schools in Ontario, Canada and are open to Adults also.
