Online settlement language training solutions for adult newcomers and teaching professionals.

Avenue represents an expanded mandate to support e-learning in the IRCC-funded sector.

As we move into the 2020-25 funding cycle, the Avenue.ca project will continue to expand in capacity to support PBLA-based settlement language training. The Centre for Canadian Language Benchmarks (CCLB) and New Language Solutions (NLS) and other service providers will be developing more and more PBLA-aligned courseware, hosted on the Tutela side of Avenue, and available to teachers through the custom courseware builder function in the Avenue Moodle.
