CIES Continues Expansion and Growth

As we move into 2016 CIES continues to expand its services across the city. This past week CIES added 6 additional weekday classes.  Further still, CIES will add four more weekend classes to our our NE Whitehorn Location. With our SE location in Forest Lawn already running weekend classes, CIES now offers programs and services 7 days a week across two locations, in both North and South Calgary. In our sheer availability and timings we stand alone, as there is no else in the city that can say the same.

Further still, with expansion and growth comes renovations, Our 22,000 square foot facility in the NE is less than four years old, so it was time to turn our attention to our 15,000 square foot SE Location, the CIES Head Office since 2003. Our Drop-in and ESL programs have had classrooms refurbished, with everything from new tables, additional tablets and additional resources, including a re-designed and updated curriculum and a volunteer training package. Even our admin floor is getting in on the action with new flooring being laid, along with all rooms being given as a fresh coat of paint.

We have been proud to serve the community of Calgary for nearly three decades and with two bustling and up to date centres on both sides of the city open 7 days a week, we look forward to three decades more. And we will do so carrying forth the same goal that has been there from day one - to provide Calgary immigrants and economically disadvantaged individuals with a solid foothold and afford them the opportunities to grow into productive, confident and contributive Canadians.
