Portail, and its English version Gateway, is a collaboration among organizations to better serve and support newcomers who choose to make Alberta their new home. Born out of the desire to improve the lives of newcomers in Calgary, Gateway ensures immigrants and refugees are connected to the best-fit programs and services to thrive in their new homeland.
Whether they’ve moved to Canada to build a better future, or are escaping poverty and war, newcomers bring along with them a wealth of experiences and knowledge. Despite their desire to succeed in their new homeland, many fall through the cracks of a complex support system and are unable to build thriving lives. Our vision is to help newcomers realize their dreams and unleash their economic, social, and civic potential.

If you are a permanent resident or a protected person, you can benefit from free language courses. These courses are financed by the Canadian Government. They are called Language Instructions for Newcomers to Canada (LINC), or Cours de Langue pour les Immigrants au Canada (CLIC) in French.

Francophone day-care. Our mission is to offer high quality French day-care to Franco Albertan children. We aim to stimulate children’s cognitive, emotional, social, physical and language developments in a safe environment.
We are a non-profit organization founded in 1985. Our programs are customized to help children acquire their social, physical and language skills, and to stimulate their cognitive and emotional spheres, along with their creativity through games. We have our hearts set on creating a safe environment to stimulate independence development in every child.
In Spring 2018, our day-care programs were awarded with the label “ELCC” from the Government of Alberta (Early Learning and Child Care Center). The ELCC grant aims at improving the quality, the affordability, and the accessibility of the child-care services in designated centers. Furthermore, the children of our day-care programs now benefit from the educational framework “Games, involvement and possibilities.”
We offer three programs in four different places: SW, NE and SE of Calgary, and Cochrane. The first program is child-care for children aged 12 months to 5 years old. The second program is nursery school for children aged 3 to 5 years old who do not go to school. The third one is a school day-care program for children going to preschool and up to 6th grade. Please visit the section “Nos emplacements” on our website for more information about the programs offered in each location.
