Citizenship Resources

A classroom resource for teaching citizenship topics to adult English language learners.


The main objective of the Citizenship Resource is to provide LINC and Adult ESL instructors with a framework and instructional tools for program planning and teaching Canadian citizenship concepts in the adult ESL classroom. The Citizenship Resource complements a series of CIC-funded resources for LINC programs:

  • LINC 1–5 Curriculum Guidelines
  • LINC 5–7 Curriculum Guidelines
  • LINC 1–4 Classroom Activities
  • LINC 5–7 Classroom Activities

The Citizenship Resource adds new content to the existing LINC and Adult ESL curricula and related resources, and supports instructors in teaching citizenship-related themes. The themes included in the Resource relate to the content of Discover Canada: The Rights and Responsibilities of Citizenship, a study guide funded and developed by Citizenship and Immigration Canada for those preparing for the citizenship test.
