Bring back LINC to Sheridan College.

As teachers and students of the LINC (Language Instruction for Newcomers to Canada) program recently withdrawn from Sheridan College campuses, we feel that Sheridan College’s priority should be the success and community engagement of our legal Canadian citizens (including our Landed Immigrants and Refugees), BEFORE opening up registration to programs for international students of other countries. With wise budgeting, government funding, and a strong commitment to do the right thing, we feel that Sheridan College can provide the necessary positive, supportive and thriving environment to build confidence and promote the success of our Canadian Newcomers. We also feel that bringing LINC back to Sheridan College would reinforce Sheridan College’s commitment to the 2024 Plan, which “captures what most people value about Sheridan and what students will need to thrive in an ever-changing world” and “that cares less about what we’re called and more about what we can help people achieve.” Sheridan College has provided our Newcomers with a level of English language instruction for new Immigrants and Refugees that does not exist at the same level outside the College. By bringing back the program, Sheridan would be contributing to the success of our new citizens and ultimately the success of our community.
