Drop-In Workshops

Practise English while covering settlement topics

Our virtual drop-in workshops contain valuable information on settlement topics, e.g. make an appointment with a financial advisor to open a tax-free savings account. Registered EO learners can “drop-in” to these workshops anytime!

Each workshop has both online learning materials and a live online event.

Learning Materials

Watch Shiem talk about why she likes drop-in workshops.

You can work through the learning materials ahead of time to prepare for the live presentation, or work through the materials any time after the event is over to add to your knowledge on the subject. Below you can select a workshop to see the learning materials for upcoming or archived topics.

Live Events

To attend the associated live events, you must login to this site. The “Upcoming” section below shows workshops that have a live event scheduled in the near future. The learning materials will show the dates and times of the live event and link to it. When it is time for the event, click the link and join the workshop! You can also view the Drop-in Workshops calendar to see all the live workshop dates.
