We understand that new Canadians living in Halton may have had different experiences with emergency services, or may not know how they enhance public safety in our region. With this in mind, the Halton Regional Police Service (HRPS) in partnership with the Halton Multicultural Council and our local Fire and Paramedic Services, have developed the Emergency Services Introduction for New Canadians (ESINC) Program.

What is the ESINC Program?

The ESINC program presents to the Halton Multicultural Council's English as a Second Language (ESL) and Language Instruction for Newcomers to Canada (LINC) classes. Participants are taught about how each of the emergency services operate and how they work together to serve the needs of the community. At the end of the presentation, participants will have a better understanding of:

  • Who the different emergency services are and what they do
  • How and when to call police, fire, or paramedic services
  • What to expect in an emergency
  • What the role of police is in the community
  • An understanding of current crime trends that may impact them as a new Canadian
