If your home language is a language other than English, your child may require a language assessment at the Newcomer Reception Centre. Your child's school will let you know if this is necessary. The Newcomer Reception Centre provides newcomer families and students with a welcoming and supportive introduction to the Ontario school system and access to programs in the local community.

The Newcomer Reception Centre is located at The Newcomer Reception Centre 443 Ouellette Avenue, Unit C, Windsor, ON. The telephone number is (519) 985-6333.
