Learn: Settlement Activities

Our Activities are Free

Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) funds Live & Learn to provide settlement and English language support to immigrants to Manitoba.

Our Activities are Informal, Flexible and Learner-Directed

We provide learning materials and you decide which one to use. You make your own study schedule. You are the boss of your learning. E-Facilitators are here to help you navigate the resources and build your learning plan.

Choose from 4 types of learning: Group Study (including Drop-in Workshops, Multi-week Sessions, Coffee Chats); Self Study (including English Exercises, Canadian Idioms, iEnglish); One-on-One (connect with e-Facilitators or e-Volunteers); and Peer-to-Peer (chat in discussion forums). Scroll down to see the latest activities in each.

Our learning activities are open to all visitors to the website. However, you can take advantage of extra features (live workshops, forums, eVolunteers, eFacilitators, tracking your progress), by registering with us and logging in.
