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

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
