Rights Bites podcasts and lesson plans

Rights Bites, CLEO’s audio podcast series for newcomers, draws attention to some common legal problems that affect newcomer tenants and workers in Ontario, and gives information about legal rights. As a LINC or ESL instructor, you can share the audio content with learners directly, or use the companion lesson plans and CLB guidelines that go with each episode to help guide learners through the podcasts.

Each episode combines interviews with lawyers, community workers, and immigrants who have experience with either an employment law or housing law problem.
