March 23, 2021 – CBC PEI: A PEI organization dedicated to helping francophone newcomers integrate into Island society is expanding its offerings to reach all Islanders. The new language training programs are being offered as a partnership between La Coopérative d’intégration francophone de l’Île-du-Prince-Édouard (CIFÎPÉ) and New Brunswick Community College.
CIFÎPÉ director Angie Cormier said the partnership will offer a variety of different types of language training programs and tutoring.
“People can pick and choose according to their needs and also according to their status,” said Cormier.
“Whether they’re an Islander born and raised here, a newcomer from another province, a newcomer from another country, or, you know, someone who wants to perfect their language or practise it for work, there’s all kinds of opportunities.”
